KU Professor Featured in D-Day Documentary

A new documentary, featuring a University of Kansas professor, takes a look what was left behind... during the massive land, sea and air battle.

That's KU History Professor Adrian Lewis, author of the book, "Omaha Beach: A Flawed Victory."  Lewis is featured in the PBS documentary "D-Day's Sunken Secrets," which airs tonight (WED) on PBS.  It's estimated that hundreds,  perhaps thousands, of tanks, Jeeps and other vehicles were sunk while crossing the English Channel.

The NOVA documentary airs tonight (WED) at 8 on PBS.
