MY WAY (2011) True story?

I’m a big history / military buff. This is the Korean film about World War Two ( WW2) with the English name “My Way” no not the Frank Sinatra song. Its the Korean translation of Mai Wei. 

 

 

I loved this movie. The allegedly true story of two Asian conscripts found on the beaches of Normandy in German Army Uniforms.

The D Day scene is great cinema but terrible history. The German officer with long civilian hair, and the US Paratroopers landing RIGHT ON the beach of Normandy. ( They were supposed to land far from the beach, and even then most landed even further inland.
