Storyline

The men of Easy Company are now in Germany, aware that the Germans are surrendering by the thousands and that the war is winding down. With more time to reflect, some of the men are wondering if it was all worth it and begin to question whether the sacrifices they and their absent colleagues have made were worth it. That question is answered when they come across a concentration camp and they see first hand the atrocities committed by the Nazis. Captain Nixon has returned from a jump behind enemy lines that did not go well and resulted in many deaths. He's drinking heavily and has been demoted from Regimental to Battalion intelligence officer. Soon after Hiltler's death, they are ordered to Bertchesgarden, the Nazi leader's mountain-top retreat.

Goofs

When Webster confronts the German baker who protests his bread being commandeered for the concentration camp inmates, Webster points his .45 at the baker. The rear sight of the pistol is clearly visible, and has a white dot on either side of the notch. Some modern pistols have "three dot" sights (the front sight also has a dot, and aligning all three on the target aims the shot), but WWII government issue .45s had sights that were the same dull dark gray finish as the rest of the pistol.

David Webster: I guess I'll finish school first, and then...
Joseph Liebgott: Wait a minute, *finish* school? You mean all this time you've been talking about "Harvard this" and "Harvard that" and you ain't even finished?
David Webster: For one thing, I haven't told you anything. But yes, yes, I haven't finished, so the fuck what?
Joseph Liebgott: It's just the way you always talked, you know? We all figured that...
