WTF...Siri narrates?

It sounds like Siri is the narrator. Quite annoying! Let the kids watch it. They sent kids 17+ to die.... So why not let kids watch? Quit coddling the wee bastards!

This interesting documentary shows how military air operations played a major role during the D-Day, which is mostly remembered for the Allied invasion of the beaches of Normandy. It reveals how the Allies joined forces, under the command of U.S. General Eisenhower, to plan, coordinate, and execute what is the largest air invasion of all times in order to break through enemy lines on the Western Front of German-occupied Europe. It reveals how airborne divisions like the American 101st (a.k.a. the Screaming Eagles) and the British 6th were flown and dropped behind enemy lines with the use of gliders in the early hours of June 6th, 1944 to secure necessary military objectives. It also describes how bomber planes dropped over 8,000 tons of bombs along the coastline to break down Nazi-built barriers and cut off German troops, while fooling Nazi occupiers about their real targets as long as possible. The courage and bravery of these men, many of whom died during the operation, is also discussed. If you enjoy WWII history, D-Day: Wings of Victory will be sure to satisfy.
