Thanks to the soldiers who fought in World War II, constantly putting their own lives in danger to serve their countries, these men conquered that nasty little German bastard. These men are heroes, who were just doing their job, saving the world.
Band of Brothers is a ten-part series about the lives of a group of these war heroes. It focuses on “˜E’ (Easy) Company, 506th Regiment, 101st Airbourne of the U.S. Army as they train, prepare, and take to the frontlines in France, Belgium, and Germany — where they captured Hitler’s “˜Eagle’s Nest’ retreat.
