Quotes

Linus van Pelt: Listen to this. When the first units of the 116th Infantry tried to land, they were met by a hail of fire. Within minutes of the ramps being lowered, one company was desolate. The assault on Omaha Beach was a shambles. The engineers assigned to clear the beach of obstacles suffered appalling losses, few of their surviving teams landed in the right places. For their heroic effort the engineers suffered 41 casualties. Meanwhile assault groups were being pinned down on the beach. As the tide crept...

Another excellent, oft-ignored Peanuts special.
10 October 1999 | by (Indianapolis) – See all my reviews

Like many other Peanuts specials from the 80's, this walks a fine line between educational content and entertainment. However, the special works very well- the education isn't beaten over one's head, while the entertainment isn't frivolous. Unlike many other cartoon specials "celebrating" various things, this one has a message, and it has an emotional impact.

As another poster has commented, this is ostensibly a sequel to the feature film Bon Voyage Charlie Brown (And Don't Come Back)- a film that Mr. Charles Schulz found to be disappointing. He more than made up for it with this 1/2 hour special... the events in the feature film are truthfully ignored for the most part; it's just used as a springboard to get the Peanuts gang back into France.

I have, over the years, gotten inured to and distrustful of the motives behind most of the glorifying/worshipping films regarding WW2. I'm not much for hero worship, and being beaten over the head with propaganda about how previous generations were better/holier than later generations. However, this special, unlike so many critically acclaimed films, presents the facts and emotions underlying much of WW2- one is left to make one's own judgement. It's one of the most powerful messages about the Allied forces' sacrifices I've ever seen... all presented through the mouths of tiny animated children.
