      That’s right.

      He was the youngest, just like in the film, he lost two brothers in Normandy just like in the film, he wanted to stay with his unit just like in the film, but his brother in the Pacific turned up alive after the war.

      I guess Saving Sergeant Niland didn’t quite have the same ring to it.
