Miller isn't shot by just any "anonymous German soldier." He's shot by the very guy he let go earlier in the movie!

Never underestimate Spielberg's talent for cheesy irony!
I thought the german was the guy Corperal Upham let get away after killing Mellish.

I think they were the same character. They let the soldier go earlier, he returns, kills Mellish, but doesn't kill Upham, then kills Miller and is then killed by Upham in revenge.
:wall: it so annoys me when people say this! GRRR!

If you went on the Saving private Ryan encyclopedia you would see a comparison of the two guys, THEY ARE NOT THE SAME PERSON!
I know he wasn't killed by just anybody, but we don't know the German soldier's name.

He's referred to in the credits as Steamboat Willie.

The category "Ironic" should be added to this, as Steamboat Willie (played by a guy named Joerg Stadler, btw) was spared by Miller earlier in the movie.
Very annoying,were they following the military order of detaining POWs? If that really happened why would they let the German soldier go free,later to wreak havoc? I felt as if I was there.
