Overview

John Keegan here chronicles the 1944 invasion of Normandy, from D-day to the liberation of Paris, and explores the role warfare plays in social life by showing how each of the six armies is a mirror of its own nation's values. Each army is shown in battle sequences testing them to the utmost: the Americans in their terrifying night drop on the eve of landings, the Canadians at the Omaha beachhead, the English savagely fighting their way inland, the Germans in their surprisingly strong resistance, the Poles in exile desperately blocking the German escape route, and the French at last liberating their City of Light.
