Norway, WWII: A group of British and German soldiers find themselves stranded in the wilderness after an aircraft battle. Finding shelter in the same cabin, they realize the only way to survive the winter is to place the rules of war aside.
Opening with the Allied invasion of Normandy on 6 June 1944, members of the 2nd Ranger Battalion under Cpt. Miller fight ashore to secure a beachhead. Amidst the fighting, two brothers are killed in action. Earlier in New Guinea, a third brother is KIA. Their mother, Mrs. Ryan, is to receive all three of the grave telegrams on the same day.

Marshall, is given an opportunity to alleviate some of her grief when he learns of a fourth brother, Private James Ryan, and decides to send out 8 men (Cpt. Miller and select members from 2nd Rangers) to find him and bring him back home to his mother... Written by
It's commonly thought that only two or three tanks landed on Omaha Beach early on D-Day. At the eastern end, only two DD tanks of 741st Tank Battalion landed out of a total of 29 launched. Three more were landed directly onto the beach (one of the four on this LCT was damaged on the run in). 16 of 18 non-DD tanks of the 741st were also landed. At the western end, 28 DD tanks of 743rd Tank Battalion plus 14 non-DD tanks were landed dry. Officers on LCTs carrying 743rd Tank Battalion saw several DD tanks of the 741st founder almost immediately after launching, and decided to land their tanks straight onto the beach. See more »

I have never been affected by a movie the way Saving Private Ryan affected me. That movie really took me out of my seat in the movie theater and practically had me believing I was really in the battle with John Miller. When somebody was dying in that movie, it felt as if you could almost feel their pain. Speilberg did an unbelievable job of putting realism into this movie with the camera-work and everything else. Simply amazing. An all time great.
