Summary
Seventy-five years ago, he hit Omaha Beach with the first wave. Now Ray Lambert, ninety-eight years old, recalls his role as a World War II medic who risked his life to save the heroes of D-Day. It is the story not only of what happened in the desperate hours on Omaha Beach, but of the bravery and courage that preceded them throughout the Second World War -- from the sands of Africa, through the treacherous mountain passes of Sicily and beyond, to the greatest military victory the world has ever known
