BAFTA, Royal Television Society and Grierson Award nominated and winner at the New York Film Festival and Silver Screen Award winner at the US International Film and Video awards, this is the ultimate epic told by the men who were there on the day. 

Machines that could breathe fire, tanks that could swim, this feature length dramatised documentary unveils the top-secret armoury specially devised for D-Day by a collection of maverick inventors.   Swimming DD tanks are rebuilt for the first time since 1944 and hitherto unsung heroes are revealed, but it’s the old boys of D-Daywho are the stars of a show.
