Captain Winters leads Easy Company in an attack on what they thought was a machine gun nest but turns out to 2 Companies of German SS who also have artillery support. The attack is successful in that they virtually wipe out the enemy but they do suffer many casualties. He soon finds himself promoted as the 2nd Battalion's Executive Officer and while he has concern about leaving Easy Company, he knows they are in good hands with Lt. Moose Heyliger. In the aftermath of the disastrous Operation Market Garden, Easy Company is assigned to assist a large group of British paras who are trapped behind enemy lines. Later, with Christmas approaching, the men suddenly find all passes canceled and they are quickly moved to Bastogne to help defend the city from the German offensive. The company is now led by Lt. Norman Dike, for whom the men have little respect. Written by

The report that we see Captain Winters typing up in this episode was unique in that it never used the word "I". Winters wanted all the credit to go to the men of Easy Company, not himself. See more
When Captain Winters leads a charge across the field to attack the Germans, he is out in front of the rest of his men by a sizable amount of space. He reaches the attack point and fires at a young German soldier, then turns to begin firing at the rest of the soldiers and fires again. The camera shot changes after Captain Winters continues fires two shots, he then fires an additional 8 shots and in all he fires 10 shots in a row before reloading. He is firing an M1 Garand, which only holds 8 rounds. See more

Yeah. You run into any bacon sandwich, do the same, all right?
