Series Description

Premiered October 1988 As television's longest-running, most-watched history series, American Experience brings to life the incredible characters and epic stories that helped form this nation. Now in its eighteenth season, the series has produced over 180 programs and garnered every major broadcast award. Series release date: 10/1988

Program Description

This program chronicles one of the most dramatic events of World War II - the Allied invasion of Europe through Normandy. For all the split-second planning and careful rehearsal, "it was a soldier's battle," General Dwight Eisenhower said later. Award-winning filmmaker Charles Guggenheim uses rarely seen archives from nonmilitary sources and oral histories of combatants to examine the experiences of the men who are at the heart of the D-Day story.
