D-Day was June 6th, 1944. The 75th anniversary is this week, and if there's one movie that has changed the perception of the invasion it's The Longest Day. So, we'll chat with author and historian Marty Morgan to find out how much The Longest Day got right...and what it didn't. Marty's work mentioned in the episode:
- D-Day: A Photographic History of the Normandy Invasion
- Down to Earth: The 507th Parachute Infantry Regiment in Normandy
