DDay70 - The Longest Day

I thought it might be worth re-posting this clip from a previous blog post. Such a special scene.

The Longest Day - ''History''
In the context of history and politics, in one moment, this scene explains why the US was so instrumental to the allied victory in World War Two. America may not have had Europe's history of art or culture, but it did have eminent courage and an unsurpassed ability to project power. That, and a sustaining belief in the cause of good against evil. Those young men ended Nazi death camps, liberated a continent and then defended its freedom against Soviet invasion.
