Here's Reagan's Point-du-Hoc speech at Normandy considered the greatest speech of all
times along with his Berlin Wall speech when he told Gorby: You will bring the wall down.
And he did.
This speech is at Point-du-Hoc where Army Rangers scaled the huge clifts to take out
German gun emplacements. As a line in the Longest Day says, man, those clifts aren't as
big as the ones we trained on but it was still suicide as Reagan points out.
Ranger and Ranger fell as they took the clifts but the next guy picked it up. The Germans couldn't understand why the Americans kept coming and coming. They said we kept killing
them and they still came.
