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

"I served in a company of Heroes"
12 October 2016 | by (Hyderabad, India) – 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.
