Synopsis
An epic documentary account of the campaign to liberate Europe, THE TRUE GLORY covers everything from the Allied D-Day invasion of Normandy to the fall of Berlin. Jointly directed by Carol Reed and Garson Kanin, the final cut was culled from more than ten million feet of film shot by more than a thousand cameramen from a dozen-odd countries. While Dwight D. Eisenhower delivers an impressive prologue, it's the dramatized quotes from the lower-level participants, in a score of dialects, that make this film such an affecting experience.
