Abstract:

Following the Allied invasion of Normandy, two brothers lay dead in the wake of the onslaught. Meanwhile, in New Guinea, a third brother has been killed fighting the Japanese. After the Army General Staff learns that a fourth brother is missing in the French countryside, a rescue mission is ordered to find the young soldier and return him safely home. The mission is mounted by a veteran Ranger Captain commanding a platoon of men who have mixed feelings about risking their lives to "Save Private Ryan". Faced with impossible odds, surrounded by the brutalities of war, each man searches for his own answer and the strength to triumph over an uncertain future with honor, decency and courage.
