A first class Timewatch documentary
31 May 2009 | by (Camden Town, London, England) – See all my reviews

This documentary is well worth 50 minutes of your life. The mostly young Americans who died, in their thousands, on Omaha Beach on the first day of the Normandy Landings deserve your time, your respect and your salute.

In the best tradition of Timewatch, this documentary gives a good insight into the planning, the execution and the mistakes made as well as looking at new research that throws new light on the subject. Its focus is the US Rangers who led the way at Omaha Beach and the memories of the survivors interviewed are indeed humbling.

The aerial photograph of the beach on the first day of the landings will bring tears to many eyes.

This documentary is a worthy contribution to D-Day filmography.
