Please note this is a region 2 DVD and will require a region 2 or region free DVD player in order to play.The Longest Day:On June 6, 1944, the Allied Invasion of France marked the beginning of the end of Nazi domination over Europe. The attack involved 3,000,000 men, 11,000 planes and 4,000 ships, comprising the largest armada the world has ever seen.Presented in its original black & white version, The Longest Day is a vivid, hour-by-hour re-creation of this historic event. Featuring a stellar international cast, and told from the perspectives of both sides, it is a fascinating look at the massive preparations, mistakes and random events that determined the outcome of one of the biggest battles in history.Winner of two Oscars (Special Effects and Cinematography), the Longest Day ranks as one of Hollywood’s truly great war films.A Bridge Too Far: An epic film that “re-creates in stunning detail one of the most disastrous battles of World War II” (The Hollywood Reporter), A Bridge Too Far is a spectacular war picture. Painstakingly recreated on actual battlefield locations and boasting a remarkable cast that includes Sean Connery, Anthony Hopkins, Sir Laurence Olivier and Robert Redford, ‘A Bridge Too Far’ accurately recaptures the monumental scope, excitement and danger behind one of the biggest military gambles in history.In September 1944, flush with success after the Normandy Invasion, the Allies confidently launched Operation Market Garden, a wild scheme intended to put an early end to the fighting by invading Germany and smashing the Reich’s war plants. But a combination of battlefield politics, faulty intelligence, bad luck and even worse weather led to the disaster beyond the Allies’ darkest fear.Patton:A critically acclaimed film that won a total of eight 1970 Academy Awards (including Best Picture), Patton is a riveting portrait of one of the 20th century’s greatest military geniuses. One of its Oscars went to George C. Scott for this triumphant portrayal ofAfter seeing Saving Private Ryan, this epic tale about the Normandy invasion will look sanitised. But in The Longest Day‘s re-creation of events leading to the epochal battle, the film is captivating and grand, and the parade of famous actors who cross the screen naturally give the already charged action even more of a boost. Three directors worked on it: Ken Annakin (Battle of the Bulge), Andrew Marton (Crack in the World) and Bernhard Wicki (this film being his only credit). –Tom Keogh
