Easy Company remains in the Ardennes Forest preparing for an inevitable attack on German forces in the town of Foy. However, morale is low due to cold weather, constant shelling, poor leadership, and numerous casualties.
Easy Company is in Hagenau in Feburary, 1945, where they prepare for a night patrol mission to capture German prisoners. The patrol includes one veteran who is despised for missing Bastogne and a new lieutenant fresh out of West Point.
As the Germans surrender, it appears that that the hard days for Easy Company are over as they are stationed in Austria. But they soon learn that those solders without enough service points will be sent to fight in Japan.
