This is an epic story of the twelve-hour battle for Omaha Beach, which changed the course of World War 2. But one of the biggest turning points in modern history hinges on some surprising factors. It is a battle where strategy was decided by stage magicians. Where conventional weapons were used along side outlandish inventions like floating tanks and exploding paratroopers. And where spies sent paintings with hidden messages. It is a battle where skill and cunning sit alongside leadership and bravery. D-Day: who survives and why? Also includes: Day After D-Day - the crucial 72 hours following the June 6th invasion as told by combat veterans who fought in the villages, beaches, hedgerows and bridgeheads of Normandy.
