Info

Adapted from Stephen Anbrose’s bestseller, the series follows the men of Easy Company, 101st Airborne Division, from their training in Georgia during the spring of 1942, to the D-Day invasion, the horrendous Battle of the Bulge, the liberation of the concentration camps,  and the final victory in 1945. In great detail ( 10 episodes) the series develops the feelings, emotions, and heroics of these ordinary soldiers who lived and died while defeating the tenacious German army. The title of the film is from Shakespeare’s “Henry V,” when the monarch exhorted his exhausted men to rise and fight before the big battle:

“We few, we happy few, we band of brothers;

For he to-day that sheds his blood with me
Shall be my brother.”
Cast
Damian Lewis (Major Dick Williams) / Ron Livingston (Captain Lewis Nixon) / Donnie Wahlberg (Lt. Carwood Lipton) / David Schwimmer (Captain Herbert Sobel) / Dale Dye (Colonel Robert Sink)

BAND OF BROTHERS is an amazing accomplishment. It refrains from emotional manipulation. All 10 parts portray human nature as it is—mixed motives and conflicting impulses. It earns every emotion it inspires in us. If it is heartening, it’s because it defies cynicism and reveals the realities of courage, compassion, and brotherhood as real men in a horrendous war.

The Christian Science Monitor

An extraordinary 10-part series that masters its greatest challenge: it balances the ideal of heroism with the violence and terror of battle, reflecting what is both civilized and savage about war.
