More than 6,000 young Americans volunteered in World War II to fly large, unarmed cargo gliders over enemy-held territory - often in complete darkness - to deliver troops and supplies. From the early race to build gliders to the D-Day invasion at Normandy and Germany's surrender, this DVD - with narration by Hal Holbrook - presents the critical role gliders played in WWII offensives. Includes rare archival footage and a tour of the Silent Wings Museum in Lubbock, Texas. Color, 1 hr. 53 min. Please Click On Image For A Closer Look!
