The night of 27 April 1944, Exercise Tiger, German E boats intercept rehearsals for the D Day landings. Only 45 years later has the full story of this tragedy been uncovered and one man's fight to uncover the true story 

During a rehearsal for the D-day landings held in April 1944, a series of fatal blunders led to the deaths of nearly 1000 American servicemen off the Devon coast. This story explains how and why the tragedy happened, and explores the elaborate cover-up that later took place.
