D-Day Remembered

Sixty-nine years ago American, British and Canadian forces landed on the beach at Normandy, France.  They faced incredible obstacles in an attack against Nazi forces that could have been a disaster. Yet heroically the Allies ended up turning back Hitler’s army, leading to the eventual surrender of Germany and ending World War 2 in Europe.

Such intense action has been portrayed in many movies.  This clip from Saving Private Ryan (1998) shows the soldiers just before landing.

Other favorite movies listed include The Longest Day (1962) and Band of Brothers (TV 2001):

Thanks go to those amazing people who swallowed their fear to help end the war!

  1. Good clip man! Still may never be another war scene created on film which so closely resembles that storming of the beach.
