The Americans On Hell's Highway (Episode #102)

KQED World: Fri, Oct 19, 2012 -- 7:00 AM

For the first time ever, we have an in depth explanation of how all American objectives in this campaign were achieved, even though the operation in it's entirety failed, and the British 1st Airborne at Arnhem were cut to shreds. The lightning actions of the two American airborne divisions come to life though blended archival footage, re-enactment and special effects. We hear how they parachuted in daylight on September 17, 1944, seized and held their targets. These brave Americans fought battle hardened Germans who were committed to a ferocious fight on the borders of their Fatherland.

KQED World: Fri, Oct 12, 2012 -- 7:00 AM

Join battlefield historian Ellwood von Seibold in his 1943 Dodge Command car as he takes us on a tour of the American D-Day landings in real time. Listen to the men who were there, land in Saint Mere Eglise with the 82nd Airborne, scale the cliffs at La Pointe du Hoc with the Rangers, wade through the surf on Omaha Beach with the Big Red One and the 29th Infantry Division, and take the guns at Brecourt Manor with Easy Company of the 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment. See the uniforms they wore, the weapons they fired, and the equipment they carried. Live that "Day of Days."
