Storyline

Easy Company's stay in England is far too short when they are ordered to participate in operation Market Garden. This major engagement is to thrust north into Holland seizing the bridges along the way with a view to giving the Allies a clear route into Germany. The men of Easy Company are told that they will be leaving for good and they parachute into near Eindhoven, where they get a huge welcome from the war-weary population. With significant losses in Normandy invasion, Easy also has to welcome new recruits who, in the eyes of the now veteran combat soldiers who have survived, as much a liability as a benefit. The battle is not easy with the Germans putting up fierce resistance. The situation is particularly dire for Sgt. Bull Randelman who is separated from the rest of the Company and is forced to hide out in a local barn overnight as the Germans move in. The battle was not a success and did not shorten the war as had been hoped. Written by garykmcd

Les Hashey does exactly that but doesn't take the harness off his back, seemingly running off with his parachute still attached to him. See more »

Pvt. Lester 'Leo' Hashey: No.
SSgt. William 'Wild Bill' Guarnere: No? Mmmm. Well, then, I'm gonna educate you. We're getting ready to get on a plane for that first frog town we never jumped into. All of a sudden Heffron stops dead in his tracks. Bing and a bang and a boom. Everybody banging into each other. Heffron's just staring at the nose of the plane because on it is panted this beautiful pinup. And written underneath: "Darling Doris." Doris, which just happens to be the name of the skirt who just, that day, sent ...

Is Babe in this episode?
11 March 2017 | by ste-34See all my reviews

Right before the woman who turns out to be a collaborator kisses Grant at about 20 mins, there's an old man in the bottom left of the screen who looks exactly like Babe Heffron. He doesn't seem to be referred to in the cast list and I wanted to be sure before submitting him as an uncredited actor.
