"A lot of sentimental garbage full of errors of fact and detail. Technical adivsor was a retired Marine captain. No Marines at Normandy. No designated sniper with a 1903 Springfied in an Army squed, either. The "sticky bomb" bit was a real hoot. Asking an infantryman to give up his boot socks would be disastrous since healthy feet is his greatest asset. Spielberg put together a pastiche of combat scenes mostly purloined from other war movies. He could have made a great movie about the Second Ranger Battalion and Point du Hoc instead of this bowdlerized mess."
