After 20 years of research, Dominique Forget, one of the world’s foremost experts in World War II archives, has unearthed nearly 100 hours of unpublished film archives, including 20 hours of the Battle of Normandy. This documentary is never-before-seen footage from the battle, which includes black & white footage, some colour and the use of CGI maps to visualise and understand the Allied’s campaign. Narrated by three of the best experts on Normandy: Anthony Beevor (English military Historian and best-selling author on Normandy), John MacManus (American Historian, specialist in WWII) and Tim Cook (Canadian Military Historian and award winning author).
