My father crossed over with the 4th Division to Utah Beach, and he said this film captures the best portrayal of D-Day than any other film. Although he survived this horrific event, he later stepped on a landmine, losing his right leg below the knee, in the Huertgen Forest. He spent two years in Walter Reed Hospital; yet, he considered the Army years to be among the best years of his life. Can you imagine that? He died in 2008 at age 92. When he saw this film, it brought tears to his eyes, and when I saw the film, I wondered how anyone could have survived the onslaught. Saving Private Ryan is truly one of the best World War II films!
