Default No better place to die - Saving Pte Ryan Prequel

Well a sort of prequel


I heard about it this morning when a US military advisor (and Vietnam vet) to SPR was being interviewed on 5Live radio in the UK

Don't know if this has already been posted or not but it was news to me.

Just noticed this on further reading:

"If the scattered paratroopers and glidermen had not taken the bridge and its causeway, the U.S. forces slogging inland from Omaha and Utah could have been blown off the beaches - and D-Day would have been a bloody failure. "

Without wishing to take anything at all away from these heroes, I think they are over-egging the pudding here somewhat. It glosses over (well doesn't even mention) the British and Canadians along the coast, and makes no mention of all the other airborne/glider borne troops inserted early on D-Day.

I pray the following (in no particular order) are not in it:

1. Love interest
2. George Clooney
3. Brad Pitt

And in the vein of Matthew McConaughey capturing a Uboat and its Enigma machine, I hope no US soldiers capture Pegasus Bridge!
