D-Day: Airborne Operations
In continuing our study of D-Day for this 79th Anniversary Year, Mark talks about the invasion airborne operations. He and historian, Marty Morgan, discuss the airborne operations and actions of the American 82nd and 101st Airborne and the British 6th Airborne Divisions on D-Day. They cover the details of the paratroopers, including “the greatest feat of flying in the Second World War.”
D-Day: Beach Landings
Mark and historian Marty Morgan discuss the invasion operations, Omaha Beach landings and Vierville Draw, a key part of the brutal battle against the entrenched Germans that led to the success of Operation Overlord and eventual Victory in Europe.
