D-Day heroes. The big step to the victory.


One of the units that spearheaded the Allied assault on D-day and continued to serve throughout the European Campaign was the 101st Airborne Division. Nicknamed the “Screaming Eagles” for their division insignia, they parachuted into Normandy prior to the amphibious landing on June 6, 1944. General Eisenhower is shown encouraging some of the men before they left England.
