Ike: Countdown to D-Day

Recommended Posts

Of course, "The Longest Day" is one of the most amazing D-Day films, but the film that has really almost taken first place in my mind for D-Day is the not-so-well-known A&E film, "Ike: Countdown to D-Day". This stars Tom Selleck, and while only 90 minutes long and no epic . . . it is one of those moving, amazing films. For any interested in WWII, Eisenhower or D-Day - this is a definite must-see! No battle, this film details what it took to make D-Day happen. I can't even begin to give some amazing quotes! Too many! The first scene is totally amazing alone. After Eisenhower sees General Miller. The final minutes. Really a fabulous film, with a fabulous performance by Mr. Selleck!  If you haven't seen it, today is a GREAT day to give it a try! And it isn't an expensive film, either! I really recommend giving it a try! And if you've seen it . . . watch it again!

Oh, tarry and be strong; Tell God in prayer. What is thy hidden grief; Thy secret care.

Yet, if no answer come; Pray on and wait: God's time is always best; Never too late.
