What To Watch Tonight? Today is the 75th Anniversary of the Invasion of Normandy, better known as D-Day. Given the anniversary and the fact that it was a major turning point in WWII and one of the most important events of the 20th Century, the lack of coverage tonight is shocking and appalling to me. Luckily, Nat Geo and Smithsonian Channel have some specials you can watch. Also, the Season 4 premiere of Queen of the South. What are you watching?
1st Choice: The Battle of Normandy: 85 Days in Hell. “On the morning of June 6, 1944, thousands of ships reached the French coast of Normandy as part of an Allied operation to take back France from the Germans. For the next 85 days, U.S., British, and Canadian soldiers engaged in conflicts of unimaginable violence, conquering and liberating the region’s cities, but at the cost of hundreds of thousands of lives. From the D-Day invasion to the final Nazi surrender in Argentan, this is the definitive story of the three-month Battle of Normandy as it’s never been seen before.” Smithsonian Channel
