Saving Private Ryan
This masterpiece directed by Steven Spielberg is no doubt one of the most famous war movies of all time. Saving Private Ryan is an uncompromisingly real look into D-day, the Allied landing on the beaches of Normandy. It depicts the largest seaborne invasion in all of history. The battles sometimes feel too brutal to be real. The frenzy of the landing is shown in all its horror and glory. While the movie may suffer from some historical inaccuracy, the sense of camaraderie, with realistic uniforms and tactics can almost transport you to the beaches of D-day.
