Storyline

Easy Company is still in the Ardennes forest but the Germans are in retreat. The men are cold and living in foxholes knowing that they will likely be ordered to try and take the town. The Germans have been pushed back to the town of Foy but they are well positioned and have heavy artillery. Their artillery barrages take a heavy toll and several of the veterans of Easy Company are severely wounded including Bill Guarnere and Joe Toye. Those injuries have a particularly heavy impact on their good friend, Lt. Buck Compton. When the attack does come, Easy Company is led by the ineffectual Lt. Dike who makes several tactical errors leading to unnecessary casualties. Capt. Winters, who is observing the battle would like nothing better than to rush into battle to lead his old Company but cannot. In the end, he orders Lt. Speirs to take command of the attack.

Goofs

During scene's with Dick Winters, he is seen sitting under a canopy and surrounded by sandbags. The truth is there were no sandbags and canopies in Bastogne. He was dug in and sleeping in foxholes like the rest of the 101st Airborne. See more »

Quotes

C. Carwood Lipton: [Voiceover, during Speirs' rush across enemy lines in Foy] At first the Germans didn't shoot at him. I think they couldn't quite believe what they were seeing. But that wasn't the really astounding thing. The astounding thing was, after he hooked up with I Company, he came back.
