The Green Howards History
The story of Bill's regiment
(Under 2 minutes)
The Dunkirk evacuation, codenamed Operation Dynamo by the British, was the evacuation of Allied soldiers from the beaches and harbour of Dunkirk between May 26 and June 4 1940, when British, French and Canadian troops were cut off by the German army during the Battle of Dunkirk in the Second World War. (3 minutes)
D-Day - The invasion of Normandy on June 6th, 1944. (3 minutes).
Also note that the movie, The Longest Day, provides a very passable impression of the D-Day beach landings, authentic to Bill's war story. Of course, Saving Private Ryan is the modern epic which really shows what it was like.
There are loads of World War 1939-45 video clips on YouTube.
