On that morning of June 6th 1944, the waters of the English Channel along Omaha Beach ran red with the blood of those who fought to free Europe from Nazi domination.
Eventually, two million brave Allied servicemen -many just teenagers- would cross the beaches under blistering enemy fire.
In this riveting episode of "War Stories with Oliver North," you'll hear from men who slogged through water up to their necks while wedged down by more than 100 pounds of gear. You'll meet those who parachuted behind enemy lines in the midst of bullets and anti-aircraft fire.
From the beaches of Normandy and the D-Day museum in New Orleans, Oliver North pays tribute to those you can't hear from: the 29,000 troops who gave their lives to preserve America's freedoms and liberate Europe from Adolf Hitler.
This, too, is their story.
