D-Day at Pointe-Du-Hoc

D-Day at Pointe-du-Hoc tells the remarkable story of the U.S. Army’s 2nd Ranger battalion. Led by Lt. Col. James Earl Rudder, the soldiers scaled the 100-foot cliffs of Pointe-du-Hoc in Normandy on June 6, 1944 to destroy six German cannons situated halfway between Omaha and Utah Beaches. Many believed it was a suicidal mission for the men involved. Narrated by actor David McCallum (The Man from U.N.C.L.E. and NCIS) and featuring interviews with surviving veterans from the Pointe-Du-Hoc assault, the documentary chronicles the dangerous and daring mission. Weaving together the first-hand accounts, striking drone footage of the English Channel approach and imposing Pointe cliffs, and rare archival footage of the 2nd Rangers preparing for action, D-Day at Pointe-du-Hoc shares an incredible story of adversity and courage from World War II.

D-Day at Pointe-du-Hoc airs on Tuesday, June 4 at 3:00 p.m.
