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
Did You Know?
When Winters drops the potato masher in the first 105mm gun's barrel, he doesn't pull the pin out. You can see him pull on it but when the grenade drops into the barrel the pin is still attached. See more
After the scene where Compton, Toye and Winters storm the second gun, Toye confronts a German solider who attempts to surrender. Numerous angles in this scene show that Toye has lost the stock to his Thompson (likely to have fallen off prior to this scene). See more
