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

During the scene where Lt. Compton is asking Lt. Winters about the status of their CO, their breath is visible. Since D-Day was in June, this is pretty unlikely. See more »

Misdrop to Machineguns
19 March 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Though one may not have seen the first episode in the series, it's still easy to appreciate from the limited introduction the mood of the story, and get into the plot, as the story explains itself throughout, all the while maintaining a fast pace and intensity. I was also struck by the lack of soundtrack or musical accompaniment that prevails in many action scenes in other movies or series. Despite this, and possibly because of this, the realism is increased if anything. The audience isn't spared the blood and carnage that has become a theme in recent war films, which, contrary to older ones that decreased graphic content and upped the heroics, goes to show the true nature of war as apposed to the "dulce et decorum est pro patria mori" view shown in John Wayne-esquire films. Rather than an inappropriate element that should be censored or taken down a notch, this should be incorporated into other films of the genre lest there be any false notions of the true nature of war-especially on a man-to-man level.
