June 6, 1944 above occupied France... With church bells ringing, paratroopers of the 101st and 82nd Airborne Divisions descent in and around towns such as Sainte-Mere-Eglise.A short time prior, these young men were students, farm hands, soda jerks, and factory workers. Now, they will fight for their lives and more-- to liberate the oppressed. Soon, across the Atlantic, President Roosevelt will go on the radio and lead the country in a prayer for their safety.
