English Summary:

Its vintage footage and you-are-there dramatizations of the action on Omaha Beach drive home the terrifying, disorienting experience of watching almost everything go wrong. Its narrative, buttressed by interviews with experts and Omaha vets from both sides, never loses its historical rigor and attention to detail. The result: a terrible but inclusive portrait of Omaha Beach that vividly depicts the nonstop heroics, screw-ups, and carnage.

Surviving D-Day closely examines the big picture: strategy, tactics, terrain, tides, key hardware, and carefully laid plans gone awry. Take Rommel’s hardened defenses—3,700 obstacles, 1,700 landmines, barbed wire, and deadly enfilading fields of fire perforating GIs trying to cross 300 yards to cliffs honeycombed with pillboxes, trenches, and tunnels filled with German defenders. Besides mortars and 88s, they were armed with MG42 machine guns firing 1,500 rounds per minute. Behind all this, Rommel flooded hundreds of square miles of fields to neutralize or kill Allied paratroopers. Scary enough, but he had inadvertent Allied help. Thanks to the thick cloud cover and fear of hitting GIs, none of the offensive support for Omaha Beach did its job as planned—except for the destroyer USS Frankford, which risked sinking to offer fire support while driving off E-boats and picking up survivors. Most of the “amphibious” Sherman tanks, tested only in calm waters, drowned in the choppier Channel. The Rangers’ mortar-fired grapnel hooks, their ropes heavily soaked, mostly fell short of Point du Hoc’s cliff top. And so on.

 

Hungarian Summary:

A "Túléltem a D-napot" című műsorunkban azokra emlékezünk, akik 1944. június 6-án életüket áldozták Nyugat-Európa szabadságáért Normandia partjainál. A háború ötödik évében nem csak a kontinens, de az egész világ jövője forgott kockán, amikor 34 000 amerikai katona végrehajtotta az addigi legnagyobb partraszállást. 12 órán át folyt az eposzi mértékű csata az Omaha Beach-en, a partszakaszon, ahol a szövetségesek elszenvedték legsúlyosabb veszteségeiket. Aznap 1450 katona érkezett az első hullámban. A feltételezések szerint ezek harmada egy órán belül halott volt. A csata túlélői mesélnek arról, mit éreztek a parthoz közelegve, majd a géppuskák kereszttüzében. Emellett számítógépes grafika segítségével is felelevenítjük az ottani eseményeket és bemutatjuk a partraszállásnál használt fegyvereket is.
