About this item
"Heroes Of War Collection: Frontline Combat" includes "D-Day: The 6th Of June", "Decision Before Dawn", "Guadalcanal Diary" and "Halls Of Montezuma". "D-Day The Sixth Of June": In this electrifying film, Robert Taylor portrays Captain Brad Parker, an American officer on the front lines on June 6, 1944 - D-Day - when 3,000,000 men, 11,000 planes and 4,000 ships will come together to invade Normandy and determine the world's future. And since Parker and his commander (Richard Todd) are in love with the same woman (Dana Wynter), the day's fighting will also determine which of two men can return home to her. "Guadalcanal Diary": One of the greatest war movies of all time, combining action-packed, high-caliber battle sequences with quintessential foxhole-buddy camaraderie. Released in 1943, its authenticity and power remain undiminished. The story follows one squad of Marines through the bloody assaults on the Solomon Islands during the opening stages of the war in the South Pacific. There's the tough sergeant (Lloyd Nolan), a cab driver from Brooklyn (William Bendix), a Mexican (Anthony Quinn) and a chaplain (Preston Foster). A battle-weary narrator reads from a diary, commenting on the typical grunt's everyday life, and death. Battles and dates of engagement are named, putting the explosive action into a solid historical context. "Halls Of Montezuma": A World War II battle-action classic paying homage to United States Marine Corps operations in the Pacific! Richard Widmark leads an all-star cast of leathernecks - including Jack Palance, Robert Wagner, Karl Malden, Richard Boone and Jack Webb, into battle on a heavily-fortified enemy island. Their objective is a Japanese rocket site in the island's interior, and this action-packed story follows the squad as they pick their way through enemy-infested jungles. In the process, the senior officer is transformed from a former school teacher into a combat-hardened leader, and his disparate squad of men is forged into a cohesive fighting unit.
