Editorial Reviews

New York Times 06-16-1977 "...Certainly equal to Darryl F. Zanuck's THE LONGEST DAY....One watches it not so much in admiration as in awe..."
Total Film 06-01-2000 "...The last cast-of-thousands, star-studded war movie ever made, Attenborough's three-hour epic deserves repeated viewing..." -- 4 Stars
