A movie about Winston Churchill in the few days leading up to the D-Day 
landing at Normandy.  Perhaps unusual to many is that Churchill opposed 
the operation and wanted something done to divert the Germans at the 
same time, or not do the landing at all.  To me the story was ultimately

the basis of ANZAC Day in Australia, April 25.  History blames him for 
that tragedy, but he insists in this movie that the fault was with those 
responsible for carrying it out.  He was haunted for the rest of his 
life by it.  This is shown from the beginning of this movie, but the 
Gallipoli reference is revealed later in the movie.
