They Depended On Each Other. And The World Depended On Them.
Based on the bestseller by Stephen E. Ambrose, Band Of Brothers tells the story of Easy Company, 506th Regiment of the 101st Airborne Division, U.S. Army. Drawn from interviews with survivors of Easy Company, as well as soldiers' journals and letters, Band Of Brothers chronicles the experiences of these men who knew extraordinary bravery and extraordinary fear. They were an elite rifle company parachuting into France early on D-Day morning, fighting in the Battle of the Bulge and capturing Hitler's Eagle's Nest at Berchtesgaden. They were also a unit that suffered 150 percent causalities, and whose lives became legend.

"Exquisite drama and compelling history constructed with masterful writers, producers, and filmmakers, Band of Brothers is worthy of every word of praise it has received to date.  Nicholas Sylvain, DVDVerdict.com
"...distinguished, serious work of cinema...  Paul Fussell, Slate.com

Editor's Note
This 10-part HBO television miniseries focuses on Easy Company, a group of American soldiers in World War II, tracking their experiences from the beginning of boot camp to the end of the war. Anchored by actors Damian Lewis and Ron Livingston, the series gives detailed attention to their experiences as a group, as well as the way that each of them develops individually. Based on historian Stephen E. Ambrose's book of real-life accounts, BAND OF BROTHERS was executive produced by Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks, who worked together on SAVING PRIVATE RYAN. Hanks also directed one episode, featuring his son, Colin Hanks.

Professional Reviews

Entertainment Weekly
"...If it doesn't put a lump in your throat, you need to have your throat checked..." 11/08/2002 p.89

San Francisco Chronicle 9 of 10
Band of Brothers is the biggest shootout and blow-'em-up in TV history, and all the World War II pyrotechnics didn't come cheap...Produced by Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks, the 10-hour HBO miniseries cost $120 million to film, a record for the small screen...That's double the price tag of ABC's 1988 mega-mini War and Remembrance, minus inflationary adjustments, and at least triple the explosive firepower. Band of Brothers is big and loud...Also quite different. Unlike its precursors, Band of Brothers remains aloof from the usual cliches of World War II movies...Band of Brothers casts its heart on the side of brute combat realism and pays a price in its absence of narrative glue...The viewer lives and figuratively dies with the men of Easy Company, 506th Regiment, 101st Airborne Division, as they fight across Europe from D-Day to beyond VE-Day, yet feels little emotional investment in any of them. Even after 10 hours, it's hard to tell some of them apart...Before D-Day, Sobel is mercifully replaced by the most enduring hero of the miniseries, Lt. Richard Winters (Damian Lewis), the closest that Band of Brothers comes to a leading man...Winters is a laconic teetotaler who soon proves his competence in action, leading a D-Day assault on a German artillery unit. Later, away from his men, Winters struggles with his own emotions during a weekend furlough to Paris. He rides Metro trains alone, haunted by his point-blank shooting of a young German soldier he encountered in Holland...Winters is the no-frills embodiment of American film heroism, and Lewis plays him with the tiniest hints of Gary Cooper and Henry Fonda. You'd never guess it, but it's true: Lewis is an English actor...Each episode comes with a preface -- actual survivors of Easy Company being interviewed on camera, never having to reach far down to call up vivid memories from nearly 60 years ago. They're all identified at the end of the final episode, and Winters is among them...It should be a powerful moment; instead it may come across as merely interesting...Band of Brothers is an immense achievement, raising the bar for combat realism. But to the end, it's hobbled by its noble disinclination to play the Hollywood game...Matching the true faces with the actors is a chore. As movie characters, most of these real soldiers had been ciphers, subservient to the action. - John Carman
