Storyline

In the very early hours of the D-Day invasion, Easy Company along with thousands of other Allied paratroopers land behind enemy lines in Normandy. In the chaos of the jump however, they are spread far and wide with many landing far from their expected drop zone. Lt. Winters assembles the few men they can find and slowly make their way to their rendezvous point. As the men straggle in, they also must adjust such as when Malarkey meets a German soldier who grew up in Oregon. Easy's Company commander is still missing so Winters is left in charge and is ordered to take out a German artillery bunker that is wreaking havoc with the troops landing on the beach. They do so with great efficiency and are rewarded with several Bronze and Silver Stars and the Distinguished Service Cross for Winters. Written by garykmcd

Trivia

The battle of Brecourt Manor takes place over about 15 minutes, however in reality it lasted about three hours. The only two soldiers shown to be killed are 'John Hall' and an unnamed Warrant Officer (Andrew Hill), while in reality - as Dick Winters states in his memoir - there were four dead and six wounded.

Goofs

In the 40th minute, after the their gun is captured, Winters aims his rifle, but the bolt of his M1 is locked back, showing that there is no clip inserted. Therefore, his rifle is out of ammunition. See more »

Pvt. John 'Cowboy' Hall: Shit!
Richard D. Winters: I don't think that's the correct reply, trooper. I say flash, you say thunder.

An intense combat sequence you can almost feel
27 December 2018 | by LittleStorpingInTheSwuffSee all my reviews

The scene when Winters and his small force of men take out the German artillery emplacements was so intense you can practically feel the bullets whizzing by your head. The use of a non-stationary camera makes it even more real for the viewer, like a first-person experience with more realism and tension than the stationary cameras typically used in past war movies and TV shows. I think the opening combat scene of the Normandy Beach action of "Saving Private Ryan" equals (or maybe surpasses) the battle scene in "Day of Days".
