tnt made a made-for-tv movie. tom selleck is eisenhower in a movie called ike: countdown to d-day. this was to show that everyone at this point was so interested in telling these d-day stories, it was so popular and prevalent that tnt even got into the game. a very americanized tale of the event. the one significant british character portrayed is bernard montgomery. they get the details of an argument he had with eisenhower wrong. the point is that the results of this movie is that d-day becomes an entirely american tale, where the british seem completely and utterly opposed to the event. what does all this tell us? in the end, how we show the story has changed somewhat. i would like us to think about that for a second. the shift in the upper left-hand fromr from illusion -- by private ryan, we are very visibly and very graphically showing you what this cost. remained largely stable. the reason we went to war and the reason it was significant remains stable. that is that the americans led the way on the beaches in order to preserve democracy and decency in the world. accurate much.
