Three companies of paratroopers travel in a deadly mission to France to prepare the drop zone for the airborne attack on the D-Day. They have to install an Eureka transmitter and searchlight to guide the planes in the Normandy invasion.
Norway, WWII: A group of British and German soldiers find themselves stranded in the wilderness after an aircraft battle. Finding shelter in the same cabin, they realize the only way to survive the winter is to place the rules of war aside.
Untold and lost history. A true story of the American Pathfinders, the volunteer paratroopers whose deadly mission was to land 30 minutes before the Normandy invasion, locate and mark strategic "drop zones" and set up the top-secret navigation equipment needed to guide the main airborne assault on D-Day.

The outdoor set being used for this film is one of the largest outdoor sets built in independent film history. It was designed to maximize both speed of production and cinematographic perfection. See more »
Gliders and single and twin-engined Allied aircraft participating in the Normandy invasion were marked with invasion or "Overlord" stripes, which were 3 white and 2 black alternating stripes on the wings and rear fuselage. The stripes on the fuselage were vertical with the center white stripe aligned with the white star on national insignia of the US aircraft. In this movie, the C-47 transports had their fuselage stripes with the rearward black stripe aligned with the star. See more »
This is awful. Having read the other reviews I decided to summarise my opinion to that simple statement. OK watched a bit more now and am completely frustrated by continuity errors such as the wrong grenades on the German soldiers, the Americans shouting after the Germans have walked passed, all the wounded getting executed by the Germans because obviously they don't want to know why they are there or who they are, intel obviously isn't important to the German army. Why do the Germans have cow bells on? they rattle like a Spanish goat heard as they move and many many more issues. My 12 year old son has made better films with his hand held camera.
