Available on Prime Video
On June 6, 1944, more than 52,000 American sailors arrived off the coast in Normandy, France. Their mission, Operation Neptune-Overlord, would become the largest amphibious and landing assault operation of World War II. Yet no monument honored their sacrifices. Navy Heroes of Normandy chronicles the building and dedication of the first-ever U.S. Navy monument in Normandy on September 8, 2008.
