Signifying more than the historic 1944 invasion of Normandy by the Allies, the term "D-Day" was military shorthand for all amphibious operations. This exciting and informative three-part documentary from the History Channel highlights over 100 such missions launched in the Pacific, in "Death at the Tideline"; America's quest for more successful strategies comes into focus in "Closing the Jaws"; and Japan's defenses at last prove no match, in "The Final Graveyard." 4 1/2 hrs. total on two discs. Standard; Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital stereo; bonus programs "Biography: Admiral Chester Nimitz," "Biography: General Douglas MacArthur," and "The Bloody Hills of Peleliu."
