Do many American military bases hold memoriums to the US personnel that died in Operation Tiger, 1944.

In the colossal build-up to the top-secret D-Day landings, a huge American amphibious exercise, involving massive troopships, was ambushed at night by German e-boats.

What unfolded was the terrible disaster at sea and on land.
