Storyline

It's May 1945 and Easy Company finds itself the first Allied troops to enter Berchtesgarden, Hitler's Bavarian retreat. They find the village virtually empty with only a few people working in the hotel. They're there only a short time when they get the news they've been waiting for: the German army surrenders and the war in Europe is over. For those with enough service, it means a trip home while the rest continue to train for an eventual transfer to the war in the Pacific. For others still, tragedy still awaits. The men of the 101st all have varied futures ahead of them. The bonds of brotherhood shaped in battle will remain with them for their lifetimes and beyond. Written by garykmcd

Trivia

Frank John Hughes was rather infamous for it. Robin Lang stated that as soon as he found out he was playing Babe Heffron, he took him under his wing just as Guarnere had done for the real Babe. Mark Huberman (Les Hashey) joked that when the real Guarnere visited the set, he asked him what he thought of the real Hashey. And that when Guarnere replied that he didn't like him, Hughes did not speak to him again for the rest of production (though he claims Hughes did assure him it was for the sake of method acting). He even carved 'Fran' into his weapon because that had been the name of Guarnere's wife. See more »

Quotes

Richard D. Winters: [real life interview with Winters where he quotes Mike Ranney on how Ranney answered a question his grandson once asked him] I treasure my remark to my grandson who asked, "Grandpa, were you a hero in the war?" Grandpa said, "No... but I served in the company of heroes".

"I served in a company of Heroes"
12 October 2016 | by See all my reviews

It couldn't any emotional than those final words told by Donald Malarkey in the end. This series was a great journey. Hardly marines get recognized, and when they do, it's Band of Brothers. What a show it's been, excellent cast, top-notch performances and what not. A splendid portrayal of an actual war making it so realistic. Not just this episode, the entire series deserves accolades. Who knew anything about Easy Company and the 101st Airborne until Band of Brothers? Fighting in a war ain't no child's play at all. My immense respect to all the war veterans out there, irrespective of dead or living for putting your lives on the line so that we today, Live. Everybody out there must watch this show and it deserves more than just the #1 slot.
