IKE: Countdown to D-Day
2004 | Docudrama | 89 minutes | English
General Eisenhower’s decision to invade the European continent was agonizing. With Eisenhower in the same room were highly- opinionated military officers like General Bernard Montgomery and General Omar Bradley. The question was not whether to invade but when. The problem was the inclement weather over the English Channel. When all opinions were rendered, it was left for Ike to make the final decision.
“Courage is rightly esteemed the first of human qualities because as has been said, it is the quality which guarantees all others.” – Winston Churchill.
