It's a deeply powerful film that shows the atrocity of war on the human level.
We need someone right off the bat who can pull us in and make us root for him on a personal level. Captain John H. Miller (Tom Hanks), fits this role excellently.
While it was eventually revealed that two survived, it was long thought that three brothers; Robert, Preston and Edward, had all perished in combat during World War II. As a resulting the sole surviving brother, Frederick, was sent back home to the States.
