In 1944 the future of Europe hung in the balance. This series follows the remarkable story of the Allied forces and the victories that set them on their way to ending World War II in 1945. The collective military operations from D-Day in June 1944, to the final assault on Germany in 1945 represent one of the greatest military offensives. Every Allied success loosened the Nazi grip on Western Europe, freeing it from repression and changing its history forever. Using a testimony-driven format, the program uses the accounts of British, American and German soldiers involved to form a dramatic narrative structure, while archive footage brings those savage battlefields to life once more.
