The story of Easy Company of the U.S. Army 101st Airborne Division, and their mission in World War II Europe, from Operation Overlord, through V-J Day.
The title of the series (and of Stephen Ambrose's book) is from William Shakespeare's "Henry V": "This story (of the battle) shall the good man teach his son, And Crispin Crispian shall ne'er go by. From this day to the ending of the world. But we in it shall be remembered. We few, we happy few, we band of brothers. For he today that sheds his blood with me Shall be my brother; be he ne'er so vile, This day shall gentle his condition."
So what did you study?
Pvt. David Kenyon Webster: Literature.
Liebgott: You're kidding me! I love to read.
Pvt. David Kenyon Webster: Really?
Liebgott: Yeah. Dick Tracy, Flash Gordon mostly.
In the episode where Easy is rescuing the British soldiers, Bull Randelman is seen in the extreme foreground. He is in a boat paddling along with the rest of the soldiers, but he does not have a paddle in his hands.
The version of the series run on the History Channel includes edits for some (but not all) graphic violence and profanity.
