Libby Purves follows the way Britain prepared for the assault on Normandy through the eyes and ears of the men and women right across Britain who were - wittingly or unwittingly - caught up in the vast machine of war:

Accompanied by historian Dr Adrian Smith, Libby travels from the streets and wharves of Southampton to the New Forest glades where many troops camped before embarking for FRANCE, to introduce a sequence of short features and stories told by the people who made D-Day happen.
