PRELUDE TO D-DAY OFF ENGLAND'S COAST - Helmeted Yankee troops board a Coast Guard-manned assault transport off an English port for last-minute invasion maneuvers. Tempered for the big assault on Hitler's Europe, the GI Joes are taxied from shore in landing barges. They climb up the landing nets to the transport's deck. Coast guardsmen drill with the troops for D-Day, when they will man the landing barges that hit Europe's beaches.
