To mark the anniversary of the D-Day landings on 6th June 1944 we’ve taken a close look at Darryl F Zanuck’s highly acclaimed 1962 film, The Longest Day.

Widely regarded as the greatest war film ever made, The Longest day adopts a documentary style to retell the events leading up to and during the Allied invasion in June 1944.
