FADE IN:

CREDITS:
White lettering over a back background. The

THUNDEROUS SOUNDS OF A MASSIVE NAVAL BARRAGE are heard. The

power is astonishing. It roars through the body, blows back

the hair and rattles the ears.

FADE IN:

EXT. OMAHA BEACH - NORMANDY - DAWN

The ROAR OF NAVAL GUNS continues but now WE SEE THEM FIRING.

Huge fifteen inch guns.

SWARM OF LANDING CRAFT

Heads directly into a nightmare. MASSIVE EXPLOSIONS from

German artillery shells and mined obstacles tear apart the

beach. Hundreds of German machine guns, loaded with tracers,

pour out a red snowstorm of bullets.

OFFSHORE:

SUPERIMPOSITION:

OMAHA BEACH, NORMANDY

June 6, 1944

0600 HOURS

HUNDREDS OF LANDING CRAFT Each holding

thirty men, near the beaches.

THE CLIFFS:

At the far end of the beach, a ninety-

foot cliff. Topped by bunkers.

Ringed by fortified machine gun nests.

A clear line-of-fire down the entire

beach.

TEN LANDING CRAFT

Make their way toward the base of

the cliffs. Running a gauntlet of

explosions.
