A wonderful film about a great man. Too much of Kay Summersby as another commenter noted. The drama and difficult decisions required of Ike are presented well. His conflict with Montgomery and the great character of Churchill are presented in great fashion. His concern for the common soldier and interaction with the common soldier are heartwarming. Americans need to know about "The Great Generation" of men and women who volunteered for WWII and of the trials they endured. The film also denoted clearly the interactions between the leaders of the war effort in a realistic fashion...not in the usual Hollywood bravado fashion.
