In 1944 the south-west of England was packed with American troops training for D Day and Suggs and militaria expert Stephen Taylor set out to discover more about this friendly `invasion'. Digging at a stately home, the team finds plenty of evidence of the American troops' training including the rooms where they were billeted, unchanged since 1944. Suggs learns about how the GIs made themselves at home before discovering the intense and dangerous training the troops were put through on the beaches of north Devon.
