Taken as a whole, the D-Day invasion of June 6, 1944 was epic. Broken down into its parts, its success or failure would rest on the efforts of ordinary people who would shape this extraordinary event. '10 DAYS TO D-DAY' tells the story of the invasion through the diaries and remembrances of ten people thrust into the middle of the defining day of World War II. The two-hour Special Presentation '10 DAYS TO D-DAY' premieres Wednesday, June 2 at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT as part of The History Channel D-Day Week with an encore presentation on Saturday, June 5 at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT.
'10 DAYS TO D-DAY' chronicles the real events and emotions in the days leading up to the attack from the perspective of the ordinary soldier, the Allied high command, the French resistance, Allied spies and the German side. Shot in dramatic style, it covers ten overlapping stories. Using reenactments of events, voice-overs of letters and diaries, interviews with survivors and archival film, '10 DAYS TO D-DAY' recreates the tension, terror and triumph felt by the individuals who faced their greatest challenge.
