As someone mentioned previously, if you ever watched “The Longest Day”, which 
is probably one of the best ever movies made about D-Day, you would have seen

If you haven’t see the movie I highly advise doing so.  It’s well done and 
pretty historically accurate.

I saw some of “Patton” the other day.  I love that guy.
