And when the signal is given,
a whole circle of avenging nations
will hurl themselves upon the foe.
At midnight, June 6th 1944,
British elite forces
set out on a top-secret mission.
Four O.K. - This mission is
dangerous, but it's crucial.
If they fail,
thousands of lives will be lost.
At dawn, off the Normandy coast,
a massive armada assembles undetected,
set foot in occupied France.
Amongst them, an American,
armed only with a camera.
You know what? I'm feeling lucky.
Shoot them before they shoot you.
That's what my dad said before I left.

ready for the violent counter-attack
they know will come.
At 3 p. m. in the city of Caen,
a French Resistance worker
has just minutes

is himself invaded by war correspondents
at his London headquarters.
In securing these first pictures
since his arrival,
we also have the first newsreel message
from the leader of the second front.
How am I supposed to get the job done
when we've got those bloodhounds
snooping around the whole time?
Perhaps you'll just have
to learn to enjoy their company.
Ike has inherited a plan.
Hitler is consumed
by his fight against the Russians.
The Allies know
he cannot fight on two fronts.
If they can force him to do so,
they can bring a swift end to the war.
The plan is to invade France
and open the second front.
