Full Plot

In the very early hours of the D-Day invasion, Easy Company along with thousands of other Allied paratroopers land behind enemy lines in Normandy. In the chaos of the jump however, they are spread far and wide with many landing far from their expected drop zone. Lt. Winters assembles the few men they can find and slowly make their way to their rendezvous point. As the men straggle in, they also must adjust such as when Malarkey meets a German soldier who grew up in Oregon. Easy's Company commander is still missing so Winters is left in charge and is ordered to take out a German artillery bunker that is wreaking havoc with the troops landing on the beach. They do so with great efficiency and are rewarded with several Bronze and Silver Stars and the Distinguished Service Cross for Winters. garykmcd Plot not found

Shooting/Filming Locations

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


- The battle of Brecourt Manor takes place over about 15 minutes, however in reality it lasted about three hours. Also, the only soldier shown to be killed is "John Hall." This is wrong as Dick Winters states in his memoir that he had four dead, six wounded, and killed 15 German's and captured 12 more.

- It is implied that Ron Spiers killed the German POW's on D-Day. The true facts about this story are truly not known. It is reported that this event happened on D-Day, outside of Carentan, and in Bastogne. The number of soldiers is not known either. The only person who knows the true facts in Ron Spiers.

- The scene where Don Malarkey runs out into heavy fire to retrieve what he thought was a Luger pistol did actually happen according to Ambrose's book. The object Malarkey picks up is not any type of pistol but was a sighting device for one of the 105 guns taken out in the mission.
