  • Rating: NR
June 6, 1944, is a date in history that impacts the world even today. Widely know as D-Day, the Allied offensive launched on this date was not only bold and imaginative, it was often terrifying and costly in human life. Ralph Manley was a young soldier who experienced this historic event from the earliest hours; like many of his generation, selflessly and bravely serving his country.
