Storyline

It's May 1945 and Easy Company finds itself the first Allied troops to enter Berchtesgarden, Hitler's Bavarian retreat. They find the village virtually empty with only a few people working in the hotel. They're there only a short time when they get the news they've been waiting for: the German army surrenders and the war in Europe is over. For those with enough service, it means a trip home while the rest continue to train for an eventual transfer to the war in the Pacific. For others still, tragedy still awaits. The men of the 101st all have varied futures ahead of them. The bonds of brotherhood shaped in battle will remain with them for their lifetimes and beyond. Written by garykmcd

Trivia

The "company of heroes" quote is sometimes wrongly attributed to Dick Winters. While he's the one who delivers it in the ending interviews, he's quoting his friend Mike Ranney. It's Ranney who had the conversation with his grandson, not Winters. See more »

Goofs

The 101st/Easy Company was not the first to enter the Nazi town of Berchtesgaden and Hitler's Eagle's Nest. They mentioned that they were attempting to beat the French there, and it is implied that they did. In fact, it was the 7th Infantry Regiment, the Cottonbalers, operating as part of the 3rd Infantry Division for the USA for WWII in North Africa who arrived in Berchtesgaden first. They got there on May 4th, 1945 at 1558 (3:58pm). They took a few things from the Eagle's Nest and several thousand bottles of liquor and wine, but they focused on small things within the town to take with them more than on the Eagle's Nest, and they never made a stake on the town and the Eagle's Nest that they were ever there.

Carwood Lipton: Henry the fifth was talking to his men and he said from this day to the ending of the world we and it shall be remembered. We lucky few, we band of brothers, for he who sheds his blood with me today shall be my brother.

Band Of Brothers

Band Of Brothers is a character driven mini-series that is at best, precisely and probably an almost documentary but with a taste of theatrical that might easily leaves the viewers' pallet shook.

First and foremost the credit does and should go to the research team that offers an unforgettable experience to the viewers of the field work on an ongoing battle.

Despite of having such a wider range and scale the makers wisely makes a choice on narrowing down the priorities to the theme of "nature" where each part of it (there are 10 chapters), plays and projects a vital side.

The adaptation of Ambrose's novel is smart, exquisite and brimming with writhing emotions where the rest of the work is left up to execution which is undeniably excellent; the quality surpasses one's usual feature.

The series is also emotionally fueled where the manipulated audience finds itself on the melted side of the aisle with a cathartic energy that pumps up the heartbeat.

If the camera work is beautiful with some appealing live locations then it also has some brutal and inedible sequences where the art designers have done a tremendous work.

It is rich on technical aspects like metaphorical cinematography, stunning and cringe-worthy visuals, sharp sound effects, behemoth production designs, accurate costume designs and again the choreography of each battle sequences; all blends in and rains on the audience leaving them breathless.

The cast too have invested all their chips in which pays well, especially Lewis and Levingston. The chemistry among the characters, makers' non-biased world and the awareness of each and every details are the high points of this mini-series.

Band Of Brothers is a brief anthology of the horrendous symphony that nature is along with the repercussions that it ought not but inevitably breeds.

Points

Similar to an epilogue, the aftermath of war and the followed up written procedure is depicted in here along with a brief information of the survivors that lead the life after it and addition to that some more clips of the interview that ends this majestic tale on a teary note.
