Summary:
July 10th 1944. For six long weeks since D-Day, Allied forces have been caught in a battle trying to breakout of the invasion beachhead at Normandy. In the East, the British and Canadian Armies are fighting to take the city of Caen, and have suffered over 26,000 casualties and in the West, the US forces, in just 12 days, lose over 10,000 troops. In a final throw of the dice, the Allied commanders come up with an audacious plan, operation Cobra. If successful, they will split the German forces and sweep into France. Aerial reconnaissance photographs taken at the time have now been layered over a 3 dimensional contour map to create a CGI "model" of the battle. For the first time these original high-resolution images, allows the viewer to track the battle, step by step, from the air. Individual stories of courage and heroism can be placed in the exact location where they took place.
