On June 6, 1944, the largest Allied operation of World War II began in Normandy, France. Yet, few know in detail exactly why and how, from the end of 1943 through August 1944, this region became the most important location in the world.
Now, a new documentary film, D-Day 3D: Normandy 1944, invites audiences to step back in time to fully appreciate the daunting challenges and epic sacrifices that changed the course of history.
Narrated by renowned journalist Tom Brokaw, the film pays tribute to those who gave their lives for our freedom.
“What I was drawn to in this film is that it tells us the story of D-Day in a new way that gives such clarity to one of the most important events in the history of mankind,” said Brokaw.
To commemorate the 70th Anniversary of this historic event and to honor area veterans, special screenings will be offered at the Tennessee Aquarium IMAX 3D Theater June 6, 7 and 8 at noon and 2 p.m. Proceeds from the June 6th screenings will help support the National Medal of Honor Museum of Military History in Chattanooga.
On June 6th, General B.B. Bell will introduce the noon screening and recognize Medal of Honor recipient Charles Coolidge, who will attend the premiere event with family members.
