The history altering success of the D-Day invasion depended on innovative engineering and technological advances. D-Day Tech is the story of those scientific and mechanical breakthroughs.

They came ashore by the thousands, pouring from Higgins boats and dropping from the sky suspended from silk. Their path had been smoothed by "huff-Duffs" and "Hedgehogs," and their plans disguised by elaborate deceptions deploying virtual armies made from dummies and inflatable tanks. The heroism of the soldiers at D-Day is the stuff of legend, and their incredible accomplishments were helped by a host of remarkable devices, machines and weapons.

MODERN MARVELS® shines the spotlight on the array of inventions that made the epic invasion possible, telling the stories of their development and following them into combat in the greatest invasion in history. From parachuting mannequins to pole charges, amphibious DUWKS trucks to Rhino Barges, D-DAY TECH is a fascinating look at the hardware that helped free Europe from Hitler's grasp.
