    What an excellent film. Once again the horror of war and the murder of POW´s by all armies is exposed. Man´s inhumanity against man is fully explored as well as inept leadership. However, there is one flaw to the film. The enactments were just supreme, but most battle footage was borrowed from the Italian Front of the war. Further, the aircraft depicted did not have Canadian markings. Great film!!!!! A must see!

    It is an informative video. The Battle Of Normandy was fought during world war 2 in the summer of 1944, between the Allied nations and German forces occupying Western Europe. The Battle was fought in the following phases, Operation overlord, the Invasion of Normandy or operation Neptune, Normandy Landings and Operation Cobre. The Military Intelligence was an important part of the Normandy invasion. It is estimated that more than 425000 Allied and German troops were killed, wounded, or went missing during the battle. That figure includes more than 209000 Allied casualties.
