Interactive documentary that brings history to life.
Based on an award-winning documentary of the same name (see below), this CD-ROM divides the Normandy Invasion into almost 20 "chapters," each dealing with a separate stage or aspect of Operation Overlord. A dozen chapters can be viewed one after another in a documentary-like "autopilot" tour lasting approximately 30 minutes and consisting of narrated photograph and video sequences. Each chapter tour can be stopped for reading through associated articles, biographical profiles, and personal documents and for listening to audio recordings. Access also can be gained to articles through a main menu and an index.
# Experience the greatest military invasion in history! Normandy: The Great Crusade allows you to investigate maps, browse through diaries of soldiers, and listen to real radio broadcasts from World War II. Become involved in the personal tragedies of ordinary people through actual voice recordings sent between weary soldiers on the battlefront and anxious families on the homefront. You'll not only explore the strategy and drama surrounding the Normandy invasion, but take an in-depth, interactive look at the young men who fought the war, and the families back home who supported them.
