Plot Summary

This is the story of "E" Easy Company, 506th Regiment of the 101st Airborne Division from their initial training starting in 1942 to the end of World War II. They parachuted behind enemy lines in the early hours of D-Day in support of the landings at Utah beach, participated in the liberation of Carentan and again parachuted into action during Operation Market Garden. They also liberated a concentration camp and were the first to enter Hitler's mountain retreat in Berchtesgaden. A fascinating tale of comradeship that is, in the end, a tale of ordinary men who did extraordinary things. Written by garykmcd

Trivia Joe Liebgott (played by Ross McCall) is portrayed as Jewish in the miniseries, and based on his name, appearance, and utter hatred of the Germans, his fellow members of E Company all assumed that he was Jewish, but the real Liebgott was a Roman Catholic, the son of Austrian immigrants; according to his son, his especially virulent hatred of the Nazis stemmed largely from his belief that they gave Germanic people in general a bad name. He was apparently aware that his fellow troopers thought he was Jewish, but never bothered to correct them, as he found it amusing. See more »
Goofs When the 101st Airborne was sent into Belgium just before the Battle of the Bulge they were ordered to remove the Screaming Eagle patch from their uniforms, so the Germans would not know they were facing an elite division. It was only after the battle when they moved into Hagenau that they were able to wear the patches again. See more »

Quotes Ronald Spiers: The only hope you have is to accept the fact that you're already dead. The sooner you accept that, the sooner you'll be able to function as a soldier is supposed to function: without mercy, without compassion, without remorse. All war depends upon it.
