Fighting Them on the Beaches tells the story of one of the largest and most meticulously organized seaborne invasions in the history of warfare - the Allied Landings of June Sixth, 1944: D-Day.

As the parachutists and glider troops of the US and British airborne divisions went in on the night of June Fifth, Allied shipping began massing out in the Channel.

As dawn broke on June Sixth, waves of assault craft hit the Normandy beaches. British, American, Canadian, Polish, and free French troops began to stream ashore to storm the defenses of the Atlantic Wall in the teeth of overwhelming enemy firepower. By midnight on D-Day 150,000 Allied troops were ashore and the process of consolidating the beachheads and pushing inland had begun.
