The Real Story Saving Private Ryan
Did you ever wonder if the movie was based on real events or just a fictional story?
Saving Private Ryan is one of the greatest war films ever made, capturing the sheer horror and brutality of combat. The film is famous for its realism, but how much of this epic drama is truly accurate?

I’ll admit that I don’t know a lot about World War II which is when Saving Private Ryan took place. My husband, on the other hand, is a huge history buff and loves war movies. He’s seen Saving Private Ryan many times. This program takes a look at the families whose stories inspired the movie Saving Private Ryan. It also looks at some of the weapons and fighting scenes thatÂ are shown in the movie and explains why they are or are not possible.
If you’ve seen Saving Private Ryan, you’ll remember the opening scene where soldiers are shot under water. In the movie, the bullets injure them. But, if you watch The Real Story Saving Private Ryan, you’ll see a weapons expert prove that bullets fired underwater wouldn’t even have touched the soldiers let alone injured them. I thought this was really neat. Too often we just accept the things that happen in movies as possible when they aren’t. Of course, a lot in Saving Private Ryan really could have or did happen, but not all.
If you enjoy war movies or documentaries, I think you’ll enjoy The Real Story Saving Private Ryan.
