Breakthrough offers nothing particularly new in war pictures, but nevertheless manages to be absorbing drama. Full Review

Description by

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.

Product Description:

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.
