June 6, 1944

Today is the anniversary of D Day, the invasion of normandy...the Western Allied effort to liberate mainland Europe from Nazi occupation during World War II, and also the largest seaborne invasion in history.
I highly recommend the movie The Longest Day, a very good account of the 24 hours covering the invasion from the allied and Nazi side. Done in 1962, with an all star cast, it shows, almost jokingly, the bumbling mistakes the Nazis made in underestimating the allied forces. It is a great movie, one of my personal favorites.
