Easy Company's next objective is to take the town of Carenten where they engage in street to street fighting with a doggedly determined enemy. The fighting is hard and there are many casualties. Having pushed the Germans out, Easy Company now has to hold the position and soon face a counter-attack from German forces, including artillery and tanks. For Pvt. Albert Blythe, the pressure and stress pushes him to the breaking point. He even suffers from hysterical blindness but soon recovers with a few words of encouragement from Winters. After 36 days in battle, Easy Company is finally relieved and get to return to their base in England. Written by garykmcd

The scene where George Luz decides not to throw a grenade into a room before clearing it and finds frightened civilians actually happened to Edward "Babe" Heffron in Holland. The writers heard this story from Babe and decided to include the event with different soldiers involved. See more »


It is suggested that Albert Blithe was shot in the neck by a sniper, and the credits information states that he died of his wounds in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, in 1948. Fellow Easy Company soldiers had believed this to be true. After the mini-series was broadcast, relatives of Albert Blithe came forward with information and documentation that Blithe was wounded in the right shoulder, recovered from his wounds, attended the 1st Annual Reunion of the 101st Airborne Division Association, and subsequently went on to have an outstanding Army career (including over 600 parachute jumps and a MAAG assignment in Taiwan). Blithe actually died in 1967 while on active duty in Germany, and was buried in Arlington National Cemetery with full military honors. See more »
