3rd Armored Division History on Film

This Invasion of Normandy film shows the actions of the men of the 3rd Armored Division as recorded by the 165th and 166th Signal Photo Companies, during the historic operation of the Normandy landings that started on D-Day, 6 June 1944. Combat Reels has researched and compiled all of this raw combat film footage, then reformatted it into the DVD format for your viewing pleasure.

The military history footage in this video is intended to be strictly that of the 3rd Armored Division and only shows other unit footage when two or more units are intertwined. This video contains footage covering the time from June 23, 1944, as the division off-loads onto Omaha Beach, to August 4, 1944 when 3rd Armored takes advantage of the Operation 'Cobra' break through.

3rd Armored Division DVD Highlights

Great for veterans, families, military historians, researchers and enthusiasts, some of the images included on this DVD video are soldiers of the 3rd Armored Division as they come ashore in France. The 3rd as it is thrust into its first combat in support of the 29th Infantry Division. Troops and tanks of the division move through the Normandy hedgerow country. Blades are welded to the front of Sherman tanks to assist in breaking through the many hedges in the country side. The 3rd drives on Marigny and la Chapelle, during the initial breakout. Captured German POWs are searched and processed as American forces roll on. Finally watch the different Combat Commands strike with infantry divisions in the Breakout of Operation 'Cobra' move through villages in their drive south to Avranches.
