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

After Lt Winters tells Sgt Guarnere, "Sergeant, I'm not a Quaker!" and then leaves to a burst of laughter, Guarnere comments, "Being from Lancaster County, he's probably a Mennonite." In his memoirs, written a few years after the release of this miniseries, Winters mentions that his ancestry actually was Mennonite although his immediate family were not firm practitioners of the religion.

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." The soldier is in question happens to be carrying a Thompson Submachinegun and not an M1 Garrand or an M1 carbine, but "rifleman" is a generic term for any infantryman regardless of his assigned weapon system. Winters would have made the same statement if the soldier had been carrying a machine gun. See more »

Good Storyline
30 July 2017 | by See all my reviews

On the D-Day, the allied paratroopers jump behind the German lines and the Easy Company is scattered in Normandy and many of the survivors have lost their weapons. Sgt. Richard D. Winters gathers a couple of soldiers and they head to the Battalion. The squad is assigned to destroy three German cannons in their first war experience. Will they succeed?

"Band of Brothers" wannabe "Combat!" but there is a great difference between the shows. "Combat!" was created by Robert Altman and released seventeen years after the end of World War II, in a time that there was no CGI. Therefore the fight scenes are extremely realistic and believable. Further, the characters are well developed and with human attitudes. "Band of Brothers" has the usual exaggeration of recent films, with excessive use of CGIs, and so far a poor character development.

"Day of Days" has a storyline in general good, but the scene where the American soldier executes the German POWs is a stupid and not necessary war crime. If the viewer consider that the crime was nearby the Battalion, the soldier should at least go to Martial Court, which was usual in those years. My vote is seven.
