Fighting them on the Beaches tells the story of Operation Overlord, the largest and most meticulously planned seaborne invasion in the history of warfare. As dawn broke on 6 June 1944, thousands of Allied soldiers – American, British, Canadian, Free French, and Polish – hit the Normandy beaches and stormed the German defences of the Atlantic Wall. By midnight, over 150,000 troops had been safely landed, and the long push towards Berlin and the final defeat of the Third Reich had begun.
