This video documentary (below) is a great look at the sacrifices made by so many soldiers on June 6, 1944. "Surviving D-Day: Omaha Beach 1944" not only examines the soldiers' struggles on that day, but gives us a fascinating look at "behind the scenes" factors that determined successes and failures: Magicians, the physics of water, breakfast choices and more. This is like no documentary about World War II that you've ever seen...
34,000 Americans stormed the beaches code named Omaha and Utah. British and Canadian troops fought and died on beaches code-named Sword, Juneau and Gold. Altogether, some 3,000 Brits and Canadians died that day. About 2,500 Americans perished. Many other soldiers were wounded, some horrifically.
