Description by OLDIES.com:
Months ago they hawked newspapers, baled hay or studied for an algebra exam. Now these young men are among 3-million Americans stationed in England - and poised on the brink of history. They're in a platoon that trains and waits while the island nation groans under a swelling stockpile of munitions and supplies. Suddenly the wait is over - and the training, the equipment and the fighting men of Operation Overlord are put to the test. June 6, 1944: D-Day.
The reality of war has varied effects on a group of soldiers marching through Normandy, especially the gruff captain, the naive lieutenant, and a soldier with political aspirations. A harsh, realistic look at the experiences of the soldiers in World War II.
