From the Paper:

"As dawn loomed just over the horizon, Operation Overlord was in serious trouble. With paratrooper misdrops all over Normandy and landing craft miles off course, the carefully thought out plans of D-Day were quickly falling apart. The fate of the world no longer rested on the preparations of months past, but on the courage and resourcefulness of Allied troops. No one was ready for what those soldiers were about to face. To understand where everything fell apart, one must start at the beginning and look at the plans, the naval bombardments, and the fateful landings that changed the world forever."
