B- Sound: C Extras: D Episodes: A-
6, 1944, a day that will live forever in infamy, D-Day. One of the
largest military operations in history, over 10,000 men died,
countless men wounded or missing, but what lead up to D-Day? 2 years
before the allies even joining the war, the Americans has begun
spying and planning for operation Overlord. Through millions
photographs, spy planes, and code words, the allies gained enough
intelligence to gain a beachhead, without that intelligence the
casualty rate could have been higher and maybe the allies would have
lost the war. In the end it was the men on the ground who gave their
last breath in the name of freedom... and we should never forget
took many years of preparations for American troops to enter the war
and they say 80% of the war takes place in the planning, however, for
all that planning, even the best of plans also means trying to keep
as many troops alive and giving the troops the information they
needed to give them the best possible chance to accomplish their
objectives. Like life, not everything goes as planned, you can only
be so much prepared, and you have to adapt to any sudden changes.
This is the difference between a soldier and hero, a soldier blindly
follow orders but heroes are the ones who choose to make a
love war documentaries, but especially when told from a soldier's
point of view. It somehow seems more true, it's not full of glory or
honor like the tales told by generals, kings or leaders. Those who
are REAL heroes don't often call themselves heroes, instead they
remember those who they call their brothers and those who died ...and
are reminded how they were the lucky ones to be able to come home.
anamorphically enhanced 1.78 X 1 image is decent for the format, but
lossy Dolby Digital 2.0 is barely stereo and can even be monophonic.
There are no extras.
