By 5 June 1944 Hitler's forces had occupied Europe for 4 years and 277 days. By 6 June Hitler would continue to occupy Europe for only another 335 days. From air, sea and eventually land, the Allied might was about to descend on the Norman coast, ready to kick in the door to Fortress Europe and free the enslaved peoples of the continent. In doing so would ensure the tyrannical shadow of the Third Reich would be lifted, sealing the fate and eventual destruction of Nazi Germany once and for all. D-Day Blood on the Beaches examines the full story of the Normandy landings, from the very foundations of a simple plan to the time the troops invade France. Along the way we examine the lessons learned from previous amphibious landings, the painstaking deception and preparation effort to support the invasion to the execution of the Operation Overlord itself. The fate of a free world rests in the space of 24 hours.
