TV Tuesday: Band of Brothers

On June 6, 1944 the Invasion of Normandy happened, a turning point in World War II. In the HBO series Band of Brothers we encounter this event from June 6th and the following days. From the eyes of Easy Company, part of the 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment, 101th Airborne Division, as they train in the army, jump from an airplane, and bravely put themselves in harms way for the world. Each one comes from a different background where they look to Major Dick Winters who’s leadership gives them hope. Through tears, tragedy, and fear all of them truly become a Band of Brothers.
