Yesterday I watched The Longest Day after  several decade hiathus and was amazed at the blatant inaccuries in the movie. American airborne did not jump from British planes as shown in the movie; portraying John Wayne and 82nd as the  heroes was pur nonsense. LtCol Cole of the 101 was tha true hero and was awarded The Medal of Honor for his actions. His real life exploits made Capt Kilgore lokk like a cub scout.

Plus the breakthrough at Omaha was the result of Naval Destroyer gunfire.

What a piece of shit. Great cast though.
