節目介紹 Introduction

軍事用語D-Day已經成為當年諾曼第大登陸的代名詞,但它原指兩棲戰役的開端。歷史上曾有多次D-Day規模不亞於諾曼第大登陸,其中的沖繩之戰甚至規模更大。在本集三小時的特別節目中,專門研究二戰史的路瑞達製片公司將帶領觀眾細究太平洋戰場上幾次慘烈、高明的D-Day戰役。

The word D-Day, the military speak designation for a start of an amphibious attack, has become synonymous with the Normandy Invasion. But in reality, there were more than a dozen D-Days in the Pacific, many on the scale of Normandy, and one, Okinawa, even larger. In this three hour special, World War II specialists Lou Reda Productions will examine the sometimes disastrous, sometimes brilliant D-Days of the Pacific.
