Band of Brothers

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Has anyone ever seen this series?


What an amazing story! It’s a documentary/Series on the actual events of one of the troops in the war (Hitler’s time). Amazing, amazing, amazing. If you enjoy history, war movies, or intense drama I would highly, highly recommend this series. It is very gory, and bloody. You do see people severely injured by guns, bombs and other such war weapons, but the story is great.

You get attached to the characters and fall in love with them. We are almost finished the series and I already feel upset that I will not be able to see more of what happened. I very rarely feel that way about movies and never for TV shows.

Before each episode the real men that the documentary is about are interviewed, amazing. You hear everything from the actual guys that were there.

Great series for anyone who has not seen this. For anyone who has, what do you think?

I think it was quite popular with a lot of people over here but I never watched it. I had a feeling it was on a lot earlier than 2001, there was something similar to it I`m sure

If you are interested there is another good WWII series on DVD to watch.

Fantastic series. HBO did a wonderful job bringing the story of E Company, 2nd Battalion, 506th Paracute Infantry Regiment, 101st Airborne Division to life. After reading the books Band of Brothers by Stephen Ambrose and Biggest Brother: The Life of Major Dick Winters, The Man Who Led The Band of Brothers by Larry Alexander and watching the series you come away almost feeling like you know them.

How different would the world be today if Hitler and the Nazis would have won? I don't know but I imagine it would be a much darker place if it weren't for the sacrifices made by the Allies. The people who made up "The Greatest Generation" will always have my undying respect and admiration.

With it being Veteran's Day here in the US tomorrow this thread is a perfect lead in to a solemn day of remembrance.

"I cherish the memories of a question my grandson asked me other day, when he said, 'Grandpa, were you a hero in the war?' Grandpa said, 'No, but I served in a company of heroes.' " - Major Richard Winters quoting from a letter sent to him by one of his men, Mike Ranney.

"None of us could even think of the fact that we would be killed. If we were afraid of anything, it was that we wouldn't measure up. We wanted to be heroes, not to the American public or in books, but to each other"- C. Carwood Lipton (January 30, 1920- December 16, 2001), Easy Company First Sergeant.
