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.

Did You Know?
At some point the men of Easy Company witness the execution of German POW by French Soldiers. These French Soldiers wear Adrian helmets, great coats and puttees as the French army wore at the beginning of the war and during the French defeat in 1940. Though Vichy troops stuck to that equipment until 1942, Free French Forces were equipped with a mixture of British and American gear. The French soldiers that invaded Germany in 1945 would have been dressed like US GIs or British Tommies. See more

Liebgott: What about you, Web?
I guess I'll finish school first, and then...
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?
For one thing, I haven't told you anything. But yes, yes, I haven't finished, so the fuck what?
It's just the way you always talked, you know? We all figured that...
