Eagles of Mercy

A seldom-told chapter of the World War II narrative, during the opening moments of D-Day.

On June 6, 1944, two young American medics with the 101st Airborne "Screaming Eagles" parachute into France, and become trapped in the small village of Angoville-au-Plain. Medics Robert Wright and Kenneth Moore recount the rigors of basic training, parachuting into Normandy, surviving German anti-aircraft artillery and carrying on their life-saving work.

    Eagles of Mercy is presented by your local public television station.
