Storyline

In the very early hours of the D-Day invasion, Easy Company along with thousands of other Allied paratroopers land behind enemy lines in Normandy. In the chaos of the jump however, they are spread far and wide with many landing far from their expected drop zone. Lt. Winters assembles the few men they can find and slowly make their way to their rendezvous point. As the men straggle in, they also must adjust such as when Malarkey meets a German soldier who grew up in Oregon. Easy's Company commander is still missing so Winters is left in charge and is ordered to take out a German artillery bunker that is wreaking havoc with the troops landing on the beach. They do so with great efficiency and are rewarded with several Bronze and Silver Stars and the Distinguished Service Cross for Winters. Written by garykmcd

Trivia

The battle of Brecourt Manor takes place over about 15 minutes, however in reality it lasted about three hours. Also, the only soldier shown to be killed is "John Hall." This is wrong as Dick Winters states in his memoir that he had four dead, six wounded, and killed 15 German's and captured 12 more. See more »

Goofs

When the soldier that Lt. Winters is with talks about losing his radio and then getting chewed out by his commanding officer. Lt. Winters says: "Well if you were in my platoon, I would say you are a rifleman first and a radioman second" that part is true except the soldier is carrying a Thompson Submachinegun and not a Garrand M1 or an M1 carbine.

Similar Atmosphere to Saving Private Ryan, More Depth
19 March 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The episode begins with interviews with American veterans of World War II, which lets the viewer know that the following program is as close to the true story as a reenactment can be. Like Saving Private Ryan, it opens with a graphic, disturbing scene as the US paratroopers prepare to jump into Normandy. Planes burst into flames, men are shot. The cinematography is beautiful, which helps immerse the viewer, who feels the same fear as the soldiers themselves. The cast is mostly character actors, with few familiar names, even to a film buff like me. This is good, as it prevents the viewer from having any preconceptions about the characters. The set pieces are masterfully designed, noting the cows chewing cud in the background while soldiers are talking. It doesn't look like a Hollywood film set; it looks like a once-inhabited village. This is the first episode of Band of Brothers I have seen. I will most definitely watch all the other episodes.
