They were ordinary men, swept up in the most extraordinary conflict in history. But with the eyes of the world upon them, they found their greatest source of strength in each other. Tom Hanks, Steven Spielberg and HBO present the story of Easy Company, an elite team of U.S. paratroopers whose World War II exploits are as incredible as they are true. This landmark ten-part miniseries based on Stephen E. Ambrose's non-fiction best-seller recounts the remarkable achievements of a volunteer rifle company that parachuted into France on D-Day, spearheaded the Market-Garden and Rhine offensives, fought the Nazis in Bastogne and the Bulge and captured Hitler's 'impenetrable' Eagle's Nest at Berchtesgaden in 1945.

BAND OF BROTHERS
ABOUT TIME ITUNES GETS BAND OF BROTHERS!!!! First, let me say that 49.99 is a little expensive for a whole season when you can buy the box set for less. But, I think it's worth it. This is probably the best mini series ever. Better then The Pacific! It has an amazing cast and a timeless story. This is a must have for anyone that is a history buff or WW11 buff.
While not 100% historicity accurate, this series does deserve multiple viewings. So much detail. Truth be told it does take viewing at least three time to recognize all the characters. I watch this series at least once a year.
Best mini series ever!!!!!!
