I find this 54 minutes of WW2 film quite fascinating! Made by an amateur it is different from the usual combat photographer footage. Both color and some b+W footage. In 480p quality.

My dad commanded an LCT on Utah Beach. He had an Army Engineer company, with bulldozers and TNT. Didn’t talk about it much, unfortunately. I will now go watch the film.

Excellent...

Over the next decades films, pictures, and books like this will be heaped in the streets and burned.

Hmmm...More likely shortly after the beginning of o_lord & o_saviour's 3rd term.

Way cool. My dad had a D-Day ribbon despite being on the way to the Pacific at the time. He helped to build an airfield that was used in the invasion.

If you go to free aol radio an get 40’s oldie music play this with it. It is great. I am doing it now. Makes it more meaningful. The music of that era is great together visual and sounds.

This footage is from a great youtube channel I subscribe to. When I saw it this morning I knew many freepers would enjoy it.

Do check out the other fine videos on this channel as I’m certain you will find many delights there :-)
