D-Day brings to life the true stories of a momentous day, told through the experiences and memories of those who were there. It tells of the plans, the people, the courage and the sacrifice. This is the day on which ordinary people were called upon to do extraordinary things. January 1944 and the war is at a critical stage. Hitler's troops are committed on the Russian front and the Allies have supremacy on land and sea. The moment has come to invade France and create a second front. While Rommel and Hitler argue over strategy, Eisenhower's plan is threatened by a naval disaster in which 700 men drown. As British paratroopers attempt to capture a key gun position, double agent Garbo devises a deception plan that keeps the Germans guessing. D-Day finally dawns, Robert Capa, armed with only a camera lands on Omaha beach in the first wave. Teenage soldiers, from both sides, see war for the first time and come of age in the bloody heat of battle. The imprisoned heroes of the French Resistance wait in hope of liberation... The clock is ticking. Can the Allies establish a foothold on French soil? Is victory possible?
