- Program Description
This special combines two episodes of THE AMERICAN EXPERIENCE to commemorate two pivotal events in World War II. "D-Day" chronicles one of the most dramatic events of War II--the Allied invasion of Europe through Normandy. 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. "Battle of the Bulge" examines the biggest and bloodiest battle American soldiers have ever fought. This film shows the battle through the eyes of the U.S. soldiers in the field -- the young men charged with holding the line and closing the bulge when 30 German divisions roared across an 85-mile Allied Front.
