How can anyone consider this to be an accurate interpretation of D-Day with barely a mention of the Canadian involvement. Juno beach was one of the more well defended beaches and the location a key to the success of D-Day. The Canadians fought against the best the Germans had in Normandy and never get the credit they deserved.

This is one of the only movies that acctually use the book. The movie follows the book perfectly. Every detail in the book is in the movie.

Very accurate portrayal of the events of that day! The bunkers and landscapes are real locations......good castings in the movie.

Highlights the most dramatic events of these crucial 24 hours with the correct blend of reality, propaganda, and human frailties.

This film is amazing. I had recently visited the Canadian War Memorials in France and used this film as reference for each battleground I saw. It puts into perspective how huge the D-Day Operation: Overlord was.

Although, it doesn't have the graphic intensity as "Saving Private Ryan" did as they stormed the beaches, Ken Annakin gets his point across, thoroughly.

If you ever want to see 1 war movie in your life, this one is it.

Reading some of the reviews forced me to write my own. It is a movie based on one of the bloodiest battle that ever took place. I have seen this movie many times and I still cannot recall ever this movie claiming to be a precise and accurate historical documentary. It is a movie and if you are into war movies, it is one to own. The cast is incredible and it won the highest awards. If more than 60 years after the end of WWII you are just learning of D-Day from this movie, it is time to head to the history book section.

Widescreen television owners normally can purchase a non-anamorphic widescreen movie, and assume, though the picture will be softened, that they can watch it using the zoom picture on their television.
BE FORWARNED.....IF YOU HAVE A WIDESCREEN TELEVISION, AND NO VERTICAL IMAGE ADJUSTMENT TO THE ZOOM FEATURE, you will not be able to watch this movie on your set (except in normal mode).
The manufacturers, in their infinite wisdom, decided to place the subtitles in the black dead space BELOW THE PICTURE. On a widescreen television, they are truncated.
Fortunately for me, I can adjust the image upward on the screen, revealing the full subtitles. However, this is really not something I should HAVE to do.
An anamorphic release would have cured this....but even without one....just using some brains when producing this DVD would have helped!
