There is implied moderate bad language ('son of a bitch'), alongside other milder terms ('hell', 'God' and 'damn').
disturbing images
Black and white archive footage shows images of dead soldiers, lined up in a row, or where they have fallen during the beach invasion at Normandy. However, these images do not dwell on details of injury.
Archive footage also depicts battle violence on land, sea and in the air, including soldiers gunned down, planes taking enemy fire, and explosions from bombings, including in the aftermath of the attack on Pearl Harbour. Video is grainy and framed from a distance so as to obscure more personalised details. The narration and recollections from several soldiers who were involved in D-Day operations refer to casualties and the 'hellish' realities of war. Soldiers are seen smoking cigarettes occasionally.
