Trivia

The real-life Donald Malarkey and Warren Muck were good friends with Frederick Niland, a fellow paratrooper in the 101st Airborne. Niland was the soldier who Matt Damon's character was loosely based on in Saving Private Ryan (1998), another World War II project, in which Executive Producer Steven Spielberg was involved. Tom Hanks, who was a Producer on this series, had a major role in "Ryan".


Quotes

'Buck' Compton: Where you hit, Pop?
'Popeye' Wynn: I can't believe, I fucked up! My ass, sir.
'Buck' Compton: Your ass?
'Buck' Compton: Holy shit!


Goofs

When the 101st Airborne was sent into Belgium just before the Battle of the Bulge they were ordered to remove the Screaming Eagle patch from their uniforms, so the Germans would not know they were facing an elite division. It was only after the battle when they moved into Hagenau that they were able to wear the patches again.


Alternate Versions

When shown on the BBC, the series was initially run with the first two episodes edited together. This meant that the opening titles were changed to account for two directors and two different writers. The Veterans' interviews for Episode 2 (Day of Days) were moved to the end of the episode before the end credits. In the programme itself, the scene with Winters sitting in the doorway gazing out at the air armada flying into Normandy is smoothly blended into the 'flying clouds' sequence that begins Episode 2 (which is much shorter).
