Overview

A military operative with the code name "Operation Overlord" but colloquially referred to as "D-Day," the events of June 6, 1944 witnessed 156,000 Allied troops landing on the beaches of Normandy and collectively storming into Nazi-occupied Europe. Per its title, the documentary collection D-Day: The Total Story sets out to relay the entire account of that military operation - from its inception amid covert strategies that Eisenhower and co. devised in the war room of the Pentagon, to the intensity of one-on-one skirmishes in the days that followed the beachhead invasion. This set offers several nonfiction films that look at the events from different angles: D-Day: The Total Story, D Minus 1, H-Hour, Breakout, Dwight D. Eisenhower: Supreme Commander in Chief, True Story of the Screaming Eagles: 101 Airborne, Dear Home: Letters from World War II and a bonus film, Battle Stations: Sherman Assault.
