Next book I've finished deals with the opening few minutes of Saving Private Ryan. It's Osprey Raid #1: Rangers Lead the Way: Pointe-du-Hoc D-Day 1944, the US Army Ranger attack on the gun emplacements that overlooked the Normandy beachhead. As it turns out, the guns weren't finished yet, but the intelligence wonks didn't know that, and so the position was attacked on D-Day to knock it out. Pretty solid read.
