Overview
The Saving Private Ryan D-Day 60th Anniversary Commemorative Edition is a poignant and powerful homage to the soldiers of World War II. This epic film is now presented as a 2-disc DVD set, featuring all-new, never-before-seen added value. Winner* of five 1998 Academy Awards®, including Best Director, Steven Spielberg's unforgettable film achievement has had a profound and lasting impact throughout the world.

The story begins with World War II's historic D-Day invasion, then moves beyond the beach as it follows a squad of American soldiers who embark on a dangerous special mission. Captain John Miller (Tom Hanks) must take his men behind enemy lines to find Private James Ryan (Matt Damon), whose three brothers have been killed in combat. Faced with impossible odds, the men question their orders. Surrounded by the brutal realities of war, each man searches for his own answer — and the strength to triumph over an uncertain future with honor, decency and courage.
