'Twas the night before D-Day. One ship, carrying Special Force Six, leaves ahead of the main invasion on a dangerous mission. On board are British Colonel Wynter and American Captain Parker, who each, in flashback, reminisce about their separate involvements with beauteous Valerie Russell. Will the coming battle (confined to the film's last fifteen minutes) determine which one comes home to her? Written by

This film's opening prologue states: "1944. Half a million men awaited the signal to cross the English Channel. For many it was to be the last day of their lives. It was D-DAY THE SIXTH OF JUNE." See more »
At about 53 minutes and 14 seconds into the film a map of Europe is seen hanging on the wall.Judging by the color-coded countries seen on the map it's obvious a post-WW2 European map.Germany,for instance,is clearly separated into 2 sections , namely West and East Germany. See more »
The main issue i have with this film is that 98% of the film has nothing to do with D-DAY , it's about two officers on a boat talking about their romance with a woman. If the film had suggested that this would be the story that would have made it much better like if the title had been say "Two soldiers and a lady" that would have been good but calling it D-day the sixth of June is just totally wrong. It's like calling Manhunter the life of Hannibal Lector (for those of you who didn't get that joke Hannibal only shows up for about five minutes in Manhunter). Aside from the title being wrong the story is really uninteresting mainly because you want the film to show you you the bits with D-day in them because that's what the film has promised in the title but it never bloody shows them. If you want a really boring melodrama about love then yeah it's for you but other wise don't watch it and ignore the title completely.
