        The Assault on Normandy | D-Day 360

        Learn about the experiences of men on the battlefield during D-Day from Sergeant Harley Reynolds, and the importance of soldiers in executing military objectives within the chaos of battle. Reynolds was involved in the second wave of the attack on Normandy, and was stuck behind a wall of barbed wire where he could hear bullets killing fellow solders around him. He describes breaking through the barbed wire with the help of another soldier. Retired colonel Len Fullenkamp explains how the carefully orchestrated plan for the invasion fell apart in the chaos of battle and how success of the operation lay in the hands of soldiers like Sergeant Reynolds.
