Sword of Freedom
the Unsung Heroes of the Liberation of France
The long neglected history of the U.S. 7th Army, which has lived under the shadow of the D-Day landings for 75 years.

Filmmakers Marc McClure and Doug Stebleton take a fresh look at the history of World War II through the diverse 7th Army, which included famous Anglo Americans such as Audie Murphy as well as Native Americans, a heroic battalion of Japanese American (Nisei) soldiers, the first use of Black combats troops in integrated units, and highly decorated Hispanic Americans.

The filmmakers also present the little known contributions of the French First Army, French Free Forces, French colonial troops, and the role and experiences of thousands of U.S. female nurses who operated mobile hospitals with the advancing army.

The film also considers the toll of war through its impact on returning soldiers and American families whose sons, husbands, and fathers never returned.

Sword of Freedom concludes with the endearing story of French families who have adopted American soldiers buried at the Epinal and Rhone American cemeteries and continue to honor those men's sacrifice to this day.
