Full Plot

It's a cold, harsh Christmas 1944 for the men of Easy Company as they try to hold the line around Bastogne against attacking German forces. They have no winter clothing, limited rations and little ammunition. For Eugene Rowe, one of the medics, the problem is getting basic medical supplies. He's been scrounging what he can, but it simply isn't enough. He's managed to get supplies from a pretty French nurse in Bastogne, Renee, but as the casualties mount, he finds himself lacking even the most basic supplies. The men of Easy Company are left on their own much of the time as the Company commander, Lt. Dike, spends most of his in his foxhole. garykmcd Plot not found

Shooting/Filming Locations

  1. Former British Aerospace factory, Hatfield, Hertfordshire, England, UK - (street scenes)


- The Belgian town of Bastogne was of huge strategic importance to the Allieds and their supply routes. The town had seven roads leading in and seven leading out. The Germans were fully aware of this and that's why it was one of the focal points of the Nazi counter-offensive against the invading forces.

- A huge tactical mistake the German's made on Bastogne was when they would make an attack, they would attack at only one place and with small forces, usually company sizes. They also had no idea that the Americans had little or no ammo left for their rifles and artillery pieces. Had they known this, they could have easily run over this position.
