Storyline

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 garykmcd

Trivia

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 »

Goofs

When Winters types the report, a close-up of the keys show that, even though he is typing the correct letters, the typewriter's shift lock is not on, therefore the words he is typing should be lower case, but the next shot show the all caps title of his report. See more »
