A 20th century war where soldiers can't get off of a troop ship, on the beach, due to being pinned (they get shot as soon as they try to leave the ship).

At first I thought it had something to do with Gallipoli but I can't find anything related to the scene.

It would help if we knew which war, which theatre of war it is.

"Saving Private Ryan"?

"Flags of Our Fathers"?
Neither of those films. I'm pretty sure the film/show I'm thinking of isn't recent.
Just guessing here, maybe
"The Longest Day"?
That's not it either. It was a ship close enough to the beach that the back was opened to let the troops exit. As soon as it was, however, they were immediately shot at. The remaining troops stopped trying to leave because they were suffering too heavy casualties.
When did you see it? Was it in english? Does the cover come to mind?
It was in english. I can't answer the other two questions.
