Nightfall, 6 June 1944 - D-Day is over and the Allies have carved a tenuous foothold in 'Fortress Europe'.

The future of Europe hangs in the balance as Hitler's formidable SS Panzer troops threaten to drive them back into the sea. "D-Day to Berlin" is the remarkable story of the Allied struggle for survival - the battle from the beaches of Normandy to the heart of Hitler's Reich and ultimate victory just eleven months later.

The campaign to free Europe from Nazi oppression through the collective operations from D-Day to Berlin mark one of the greatest ever military offensives.

The Allies overcame initial setbacks to inflict a devastating defeat on Hitler's crack divisions in France - a victory that was threatened just months later in the bitter winter fighting of the Battle of the Bulge.

The final crossing of the Rhine and the advance into Germany changed the course of European history forever.

In "D-Day to Berlin", we meet men and women from both sides - British, American and German soldiers - whose bravery and endurance made the final push through Europe the defining drama of the Second World War.
