Saving Private Ryan was called an accurate depiction of war and a throwback to the great WWII films of the fifties. It’s also quite a page-turner. Max Allan Collins wrote the novel based on Speilberg’s film. He also wrote the novelization of Road to Perdition, which is kind of weird, because the movie Road to Perdition was actually based on his graphic novel. Collins is quite the prolific movie novelizationist, as he tells Bob.
