The real question is did Saving Private Ryan do a good job of reenacting D-Day?
Aiden Lovekamp (3 months ago)
It did a pretty good job. My great uncle was a sniper in d day and he said that was the closest thing he’s seen like the actual event. He did get a little teary eyed too. He died around 3 months ago.
Blitzkrieg Toast (6 months ago)
It’s did a really good job, the only thing wrong with the D-Day scene is the accent of the person driving the landing craft and that sniper shot through the scope as he would’ve had to aim a bit higher.
Memento Mori (6 months ago)
kevin Wu it was okay, a little iffy here and there. Personally I think The Longest Day did it best but that's my opinion.

He probably didnt mean it that way...At least I dont...Back in WW1 to WW2 everyone was tough but now and during the Vietnam and other wars only a selected few were...What I am trying to say is in WW1 and WW2 everyone was a part of the war...In thr Vietnam and other later wars only soldiers were fighting, it wasnt such a big scaled war...And now even less soldiers fight in Afghanistan if you get me...And the other people divide in normal people, gays, trans, feminists...There was no such things back then fortunately...If it were who knows how would WW2 and WW1 end...I dont like gay people but I dont care about them either if they dont bother me but dude imagine a gay or trans dude in the army...

RC-355/04 (5 months ago)
jamie bond fuck off retard. Iraq was a walk in the park compared with france in WW2. The Iraqi’s were sand monkeys with old sovjet equipment. Ther jerries were battle hardened troops of the eastern front (the ones that survived it) well-trained, very disciplined men with ahead of it’s time equipment. Like the StG 44 or the MG42. The Panzerfaust? Like the LAW nowadays.

I admit I expected stories of perseverance and life lessons, as the same of many of the World War Two interviews, but I think CNN may have only kept and displayed the dramatic parts and action stories of the interview, for view count?

Holy shit, for the love of god d day was a waste of fucking time. Nazi forces were getting there asses handed to them in the east and were only a 100,000 in France. Stop making Normandy a big deal as if it mattered. Talk about Stalingrad and battle of Kursk.
Andrew Wirtz (7 months ago)
well normandy was pretty much one of the only places we could’ve went to in Europe.
Comrade Сука (7 months ago)
aiden arnold no nazis were in full retreat the soviets were in Berlin they delayed further invasion so they could be well equiped mean while on the west German soldiers were poorly armed with most only wearing a stalhelm and maybe a nazi badge

I have heard many testimonies about D day in the past couple of days.  All so moving and so brave, I cannot imagine what these guys have gone through.  So  brave  and it seems that the Americans got the most difficult beach to secure.  Respect to all of the allies.

meggawatt muffin How was Truman evil? He made a decision to save more American lives by using nuclear weapons, than by risking a land invasion. I don't think you grasp the concept of war too well
