[to his generals, observing the English Channel]
Field Marshal Erwin Rommel: Just look at it, gentlemen. How calm... how peaceful it is. A strip of water between England and the continent... between the Allies and us. But beyond that peaceful horizon... a monster waits. A coiled spring of men, ships, and planes... straining to be released against us. But, gentlemen, not a single Allied soldier shall reach the shore. Whenever and wherever this invasion may come, gentlemen... I shall destroy the enemy there, at the water's edge. Believe me, gentlemen, the first 24 hours of the invasion will be decisive. For the Allies as well as the Germans, it will be the longest day...

Brig. Gen. Theodore Roosevelt Jr.: As best I can figure it, this is the wrong beach. They landed us about a mile and a quarter south of where we were supposed to land. We should be up there. The control boat must have been confused by the smoke from the naval bombardment.
Col. Caffey: I agree with you, but what are we gonna do now? Our reinforcements and heavy equipment will be approaching in a very few minutes. What happens if they land at the right beach?
Brig. Gen. Theodore Roosevelt Jr.: The reinforcements will have to follow us wherever we are. We're starting the war from right here. Head inland. We're going inland.More Movie: The Longest Day [1962] Movie: The Longest Day [1962] [08/10/2008 12:08:00]

Lord Lovat: Millen, Blue Bonnett!
[as British troops march inland to the bagpipe playing of Millen, the mayor of Colleville raises his champagne bottle in salute, which earns the bemused observation of Clough and Flanagan]

Lieutenant Colonel Benjamin Vandervoort: I don't think I have to remind you that this war has been going on for almost 5 years. Over half of Europe has been overrun and occupied. We're comparative newcomers. England's gone through a blitz with a knife at her throat since 1940. I'm quite sure that they, too, are impatient and itching to go. Do I make myself clear?
Capt. Harding: Yes, sir. Quite clear.
Lieutenant Colonel Benjamin Vandervoort: 3 million men penned up on this island all over England in staging areas like this. We're on the threshold of the most crucial day of our times. 3 million men out there, keyed up, just waiting for that big step-off. We aren't exactly alone. Notify the men, full packs and equipment 1400 hours.
Capt. Harding: Yes, sir.More Movie: The Longest Day [1962] Movie: The Longest Day [1962] [08/10/2008 12:08:00]

[Blumentritt has just gotten off the phone with General Max Pemsel on Allied airborne landings behind Normandy]
Major General Gunther Blumentritt: Pemsel is convinced this is the invasion.
Field Marshal Gerd von Rundstedt: No no no, I do not agree with him. This is my conclusion.
[Von Rundstedt points to the main map]
Field Marshal Gerd von Rundstedt: Normandy is the site of a diversion. A diversion, Blumentritt! That is not where the main landings will take place, that will come at Pas-de-Calais, where it was always expected!
[Von Rundstedt then realizes what he has just said]
Field Marshal Gerd von Rundstedt: [to himself] Where we always expected it.
Field Marshal Gerd von Rundstedt: [to Blumentritt] We can't take any chances. I want the reserve panzers moved forward.
Major General Gunther Blumentritt: But we need permission from the Fuhrer's headquarters.
Field Marshal Gerd von Rundstedt: They won't dare refuse me! Call the Fuhrer's headquarters and insist. Insist, Blumentritt! Insist the panzers be released to me.
[as Blumentritt leaves the office to call Berlin, Von Rundstedt returns to the main map]
Field Marshal Gerd von Rundstedt: A landing at Normandy would be against military logic. It would be against ALL logic.More Movie: The Longest Day [1962] Movie: The Longest Day [1962] [08/10/2008 12:08:00]
