Summary:
June 6, 1944--the destroyer USS Meredith joined the D-Day invasion of Normandy. Her 5-inch guns pounded German coastal batteries as American troops fought their way ashore at Utah Beach. On the night of June 7, the Meredith moved out into dangerous mine-infested waters to defend the Allied ships against a new threat, fast German torpedo boats. Shortly before 2 a.m., a huge explosion ripped through the destroyer. Did she hit a mine? Sail into the path of a torpedo? Or was the Meredith struck by a top-secret German glide bomb, the world's first guided missile? Teams of deep-water detectives use today's cutting-edge technology to make this wreck "tell its story", along with CGI graphics, expert interviews, archival materials, and dramatic reenactments.
