Two women (both un-named nurses) who have brief lines of dialogue.

The movie really doesn't have any women in it at all (save for perhaps a nurse who is briefly seen on-board a destroyer), but I feel that this is a rare example in which it would have been difficult to include fully engaged female characters considering the movie's conviction to the realities of its historical setting.

I agree with J due to the fact that this movie was completely historically accurate it would have been nearly impossible to fit female characters in, let alone name them and have them converse.

K-sar disagreed with the rating and said:
This movie have no heroes, no enemy, no lineal timeline, no characters, barely names.
This movie is more a historical documentary than a movie.
Rating this movie is like rating a documentary about war in middle age.

I have not had the opportunity to see this movie. We have watched many of the historically accurate WW 2 movies. Women played active roles and very often times we see little or know representation at all of women during this time period. I have had the honor of knowing several veterans that served in France during this time. Their stories go untold.
