This is the story of Easy Company. They came together as young men, green and untested, at an Army base in North Carolina. It was 1942 and the beginning of WWII. The men of Easy Company were part of a new type of soldier. They were paratroopers, trained to parachute behind enemy lines and open roads for the Allied Army. You will witness the tough training at Toccoa, the terror of parachute jumping on D-Day, the heroism at Carentan and Market Garden, the bloody winter at Bastogne, and the exultant capture of Hitler’s Eagles’ Nest. Through it all, these combat-hardened soldiers fought side-by-side; first as comrades-in-arms, then friends and finally as brothers.
