Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great overview of post-D-Day invasion in NE France Great overview of the post D-Day invasion. We hear so much about D-Day itself, but not the struggle or immediate battles following to hold and advance the position in France. Great info. Great voice over.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding War Documentary This documentary follows the terrible fight after D-Day through the Hedge Rows to open a path into France for allied forces. Very few documentaries focus on what happens after D-Day and it was great to understand the operations necessary for the liberation of France. The French reenactors, who specialized in the US army, were especially nice to see. As we'll as, the working US war equipment. This documentary really gave a good, first-hand, view of the war in this area of the world.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really well done, an excellent contribution Because so much coverage of the Normandy campaign ends with D-Day, it's easy to assume what follows was mostly a mop-up operation. This fine programs makes clear the terrible challenges that followed. I was surprised -- pleasantly so -- to learn that some young Frenchmen are interested enough in the operation to serve as re-enactors, playing the roles of American and German soldiers with great concern for accuracy. The information about Sgt. Cullin (sp?) and his tank innovation was inspirational. My only disappointment is that no mention was made of the major friendly-fire incident that occurred during Operation Cobra. This was entirely personal, though. My father's brother is presumed to have been killed in that incident, and I was hoping to learn something more about it. But, again, that was a personal interest. All in all, an excellent program. Many thanks for making this available.
