D-Day's Sunken Secrets

Using two mini-submarines, a group of historians, wreck detectives, scientists and D-Day veterans go on an expedition to search the seabed for items from the Normandy landings of June 1944. Among the objects the team finds are a collection of American Sherman tanks that were specially adapted to float, and the wreck of the SS Leopoldville, a troopship sunk by a U-boat in December 1944 with the loss of more than 800 lives. Richard Armitage narrates.
