D-Day – The Forgotten SAS Operation

History Documentaries

In the early hours of June 6th, 1944, an extraordinary secret operation codenamed ‘TITANIC’ began in support of the Normandy Landings. Small teams of brave SAS were parachuted deep behind German lines along with hundreds of dummies, to make the Germans think that large parachute landings were underway – the ruse was designed to lure German forces away from the real parachute landing zones and the beaches. For the SAS who went with the dummies, for most of them ‘TITANIC’ was a one-way mission.
