In Their Own Words

The invasion of Normandy is a personal experience ingrained in the minds of the men and women who were there, but when the last veteran of D-Day has passed on, we will be the only witnesses to their memory. How will we — remember them?


Over the past four years, the WWII Veterans History Project has worked tirelessly to capture their memories and tell the story of Operation Overlord like never before. We've interviewed over 100 WWII heroes for this project; many have never told their story before. Remarkable accounts of heroism, valor, and tragedy will be unveiled for the first time in Normandy Revisited. These powerful testimonies are crucial to the development of the film and telling the story of this monumental event in world history.


From Infantrymen to Paratroopers, Navy and Coast Guard sailors, Airmen, and even Merchant Marines, the oral histories which we have collected will preserve the memories of these heroes and ensure their legacy lives on for generations to come. Normandy Revisited will take viewers on a unique experience to see what life was really like for the men and women of the Greatest Generation.
