In 1942, men from across the USA are in Camp Toccoa, Georgia to undergo paratrooper training. For the men of 'E' Easy Company the training is particularly difficult as a result of their demanding commander, Captain Herbert Sobel. He drives them incessantly to excel, canceling their weekend passes on a whim. His favorite chore is to have the men undertake a run up a hill known as Currahee. While the men are fit and ready for battle, thanks to Sobel, he has unfortunately shown himself to be a weak tactical commander. Once in England, and knowing they will soon be invading the Continent, the sergeants stage a rebellion. Sobel's excesses come to an end when Lt. Dick Winters requests a court martial rather than accept punishment for one of Sobel's lame charges. Written by

When Captain Sobel is berating Easy Company as they run up Currahee on their "day off", he incorrectly refers to himself as Captain Sobel, as he was still a first Lieutenant at the time. See more

This stuff is orange. Spaghetti ain't supposed to be orange.
This ain't spaghetti. This is Army noodles with ketchup.
You ain't gotta eat it.
Come on, Gonorrhea, as a fellow Italian you should know that calling this crap spaghetti is a mortal sin.
