In 1998, the Academy Award-winning World War II film Saving Private Ryan was released in theaters. The movie portrayed the 1944 D-Day invasion of Normandy and the mission to find a soldier behind enemy lines. Former National World War II Museum president and CEO Nick Mueller talked about the museum’s connection to the film, and shared stories about historian Stephen Ambrose, a consultant on Saving Private Ryan and the museum’s early founder. He also talked about the reaction of historians and military leaders to the film and explored its legacy today. The event was part of a symposium held at the National World War II museum to mark the 20th anniversary of the film’s release. close
