America's first dday

A Story of Bravery, Seduction and Saving a Revolution

3.5 stars. “America’s First D-Day tells the story of the general who would become the first president of the United States of America. Combining dramatic re-enactments with interviews of historians, the documentary centers on George Washington’s crossing of the Delaware—a military maneuver that helped turn the tide in the fight for American independence. America’s first “D-day” turns out to be a tale of intrigue, seduction, controversy, strategy, politics, and death. Highly recommended.” – Video Librarian

By the end of 1776, the American Revolution was all but lost. General George Washington made a bold move that saved the American cause. The Continental Army crossed the Delaware River on Christmas Day to attack the Hessians at Trenton. This was America’s First D-Day.
