The day that changed the war: so real you’ll taste the cordite. It’s an epic turning-point. D-Day: the battle that marks the first real step for the Allies towards winning World War II. 6th June, 1944. Thousands of British planes and warships carry soldiers across the Channel to attack Nazi-occupied France. They land on the Normandy beaches. The Germans aren’t expecting them. Lieutenant Andy Pope is one of a squad ordered to cut off the German line of retreat. Under heavy attack, he’s left as the last officer in command.
