I'm usually pretty good about checking listings for the History Channel, but managed to miss this one when it aired originally in 2004. So when I found this DVD at a music/movie store at a mere $5.99, I grabbed it up in a minute.

The syntax and production of this 90-minute tale of 10 people directly involved in the D-Day invasion are second to none. It is superbly written and its format of intertwining actual footage with re-creations by actors in elaborate sets (some in the real locations) easily captivates the viewer. The music track is artfully matched to each and every scene, with a recurring basic refrain that is haunting. And the voiceover by A&E/History Channel master narrator Edward Herrmann provides the perfect finishing touch.

If you place this production alongside "Ike/Countdown to D-Day" from HBO, you get a wonderful perspective of the many stories that have been catalogued about the Allied invasion of Europe in 1944.

This is totally entertaining and informative television, not to be missed by any WWII buff.

Strongly recommended.

Any product dealing with World War II and D-Day in particular is a must have for a history buff. D- Day is still the most impressive military mission of the 20th Century.
