American Road to Victory: Americans on D-Day

Watch The American Road To Victory (Trilogy) on PBS. See more from wrlk.

As host of the trilogy, von Seibold, a surprisingly agile and energetic 63 year old, gives viewers the full battlefield experience of three crucial points in World War II from the blood soaked beaches of D Day through Hell’s Highway in Holland and to the frozen Ardennes forests of the Battle of the Bulge. In this first episode, land in Sainte-Mère-Église 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.
