This is a DVD of the 2nd Infantry Division, also known as 'Indianhead', one of the immediate follow-up American Infantry Divisions used in the invasion of France in early June of 1944. The division would land in the Omaha Beach sector, the bloodiest beach of the invasion, and quickly move to support the center of the V Corps bridgehead.

2nd Infantry Division History on Film

This Invasion of Normandy film shows the actions of the men of the 2nd Infantry Division as recorded by the 165th and 166th Signal Photo Companies, during the historic operation of the Normandy landings that started on D-Day, 6 June 1944. Combat Reels has researched and compiled all of this raw combat film footage, then reformatted it into the DVD format for your viewing pleasure.

The military history footage in this video is intended to be strictly that of the 2nd Infantry Division and only shows other unit footage when two or more units are intertwined. This video contains footage covering the time from June 6, 1944, when the division was still aboard transports prior to landing, to August 8,1944 when the 2nd Division captures and moves through Vire, France.

2nd Infantry Division DVD Highlights

Great for veterans, families, military historians, researchers and enthusiasts, some of the images included on this DVD video are soldiers of the 2nd Infantry Division as they relax aboard ships before the invasion. Men load equipment and vehicles on to landing craft, and men of the division come ashore at Omaha Beach. GIs of the 2nd liberate small towns and celebrate with the French civilians. General Eisenhower visits General Robertson of the 2nd Div. and presents decorations to the men. Watch scenes with the top allies brass, Ike, U.S. Generals Bradley, Patton and British General Montgomery. See German POWs searched and processed by men of the 2nd as medics take care of the wounded.
