It all starts when a secretary saw three brothers where killed in combat. But that wasn't everything: the fourth brother was alive somewhere in France. This was the beginning of a special mission called saving private Ryan.
Captain John Miller was given this important task to save private Francis Ryan. After D-Day the captain and his men started the search after the lost son.
They started a very dangerous mission, they would walk and walk and kill every German on there way until they had found private Ryan. First there was a village named Neuville-au-Plain were private caparzo was shot by a German sniper. He wanted to save a little girl. Private Jackson sniped the German sniper right in the head. They moved on and somebody of another division said he knew a private called Ryan but is was a mistake. When they arrived in the next American post a man knew private James Francis Ryan he said he was some where around Ramelle.
When they arrived in Ramelle they found private Ryan but he didn’t want to go with the men. He wanted to stay and defend his post. There was a battle with the German.

4 Why you like/dislike the book
I like this book very much because i really like reading war books. It felt real when I was reading it but that was because I saw the movie.
I saw the characters in front of me while I was reading it.
That's why I liked reading the book.
I’d disliked the book because it was to short and because I didn't understand a couple of words in English.
I would advise this book to everybody who likes to read some action books.
The movie directed by Steven Spielberg The book written by Max Allan Collins
