Realistic
I am an 80 year old combat veteran (88th Inf. Div. Italy).

I watched BOB on the History Channel. I was so overwhelmed, indeed a bit panicked by the authentic nature of 90+% of the uniforms, signs, noises (I take exception to the sound of incoming artillery).

I cried several times at the authentic staging - for them and me.

I cannot believe I'll watch it again. It's too much. Too real.

We never had so much water allowed in a shower.

Rate: 10/10

Goofs

In "Currahee", Robert Strayer is (correctly) wearing the rank insignia of a major when Easy Company is celebrating its paratrooper qualification. Strayer was promoted to lieutenant colonel in January or February of 1943, and Winters refers to him as such during his explanation to Sobel about the latrine inspection incident. On D-Day (in episode 2) just prior to the attack on the 105mm guns at Brecourt Manor, Winters and another officer refer to Strayer as a major. He had been an LTC long enough (16 or 17 months) to rule out a slip of the tongue, especially by two different officers.


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).
