Overview

On the night of 5th June 1944, the greatest armada the world has seen sailed into the stormy waters of the English Channel. After 5 years of war in the European Theater, its goal was no less than the liberation of Occupied Europe and the defeat of Nazi Germany.This bold gamble could easily have ended in the worst military defeat in history. The risks were enormous, the potential for failure unlimited.As dawn broke on 6th June, the allied generals and leaders waited for news. There was only one way the true state of the battle could be seen - from above. The task of bringing back these pictures fell to an elite band of pilots and the contents of their cameras would unveil the true story of D-Day.To a privileged few, these images depicted the life and death struggle below: the bloody slaughter on Omaha beach: the daring capture of Pegasus bridge: the taking of Pointe-Du-Hoc. Even individual actions such as the attack by 'Easy' Company of the 506 on the gun battery at Brecourt Manor - later immortalized in the book and TV series 'Band of Brothers' were captured on film - as they happened.Later dispersed and scattered to archives and collections around the world, these classified images, this lost evidence of D-Day, has now been painstakingly tracked down and re-assembled. Even images previously thought destroyed, or misplaced for 60 years have been traced and seen for the first time.Pieced together and digitally enhanced using the latest imagery technology, this lost evidence of D-Day can at last be seen. On the beaches and in the fields and roads beyond, the triumphs and disasters are revealed.
