The Longest Day
Plenty of other tributes out there today to commemmorate D-Day, the beginning of the end for Nazi Germany and ultimately, World War II. Veterans and even their widows are becoming very scarce, so thank one if you know one. Band of Brothers is a good introduction to the chaos, bravery and heroism of that Day of Days, but is only one small part of the entire story. The Longest Day features several stories and offers a larger view, both the book and the movie. If you have any family or friends who don't understand the significance of this day, take a moment to teach them.
