Audience Reviews for The True Glory

D-Day through most of the latter half of WWII is chronicled in this documentary.
Produced by the U.S.War Department, this film is basically propaganda for the war effort. Most of the voice overs seem scripted and stilted, though there are a few soldiers who don't have a sunny disposition (but even these moments only serve to accentuate their valor).
Overall, I don't deny the value of America's effort during WWII, but it doesn't make for good filmmaking, especially in 2012.
