VIEW MOVIE CLIP

Due for release on June 6th 2009 in Normandy to coincide with the 65th anniversary of D-Day 'The Forgotten Battalion' is the untold story of 3/506th P.I.R.

Told from over seventy hours of interviews from the few remaining 3rd Battalion veterans. The first DVD tells the definitive story of 3rd Battalion, 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment, from their formation at Camp Toccoa, Georgia, through to the end of the Normandy campaign.

A second DVD is now being considered which would pick up the story, with the Battalion having now returned to England and then following them into Holland and the liberation of Eindhoven. From the terrifying frozen 'Battle of the Bulge' to the capture of Hitler's Alpine retreat, 'The Eagle's Nest'.

With over three years of meticulous research and with historical contributions from dozens of veterans, this is the most complete and definitive story of the regiment ever told.

Filmed in High Definition, these are the frank and moving testimonies of some of the veterans from 'The Forgotten Battalion'.
