History GCSE: D-Day - The Last Heroes
In these short films made especially for schools, historian Dan Snow examines how two years of meticulous planning shaped D-Day, the Allied assault on Nazi-occupied Europe that would eventually lead to Hitler being overthrown.
He recounts the events at Sword Beach and Omaha, using the memories of those who were there.
We hear extraordinary stories of heroism, self-sacrifice and determination from those who took part.
Using state of the art graphics and dramatic reconstruction, these three short films bring that day in June to life for a new generation.
These short films are suitable for teaching history at GCSE and above in England, Wales and Northern Ireland and National 4/5 and above in Scotland.
PLEASE NOTE: These short films contain scenes which some viewers may find upsetting. Teacher review is recommended prior to use in class.
