I borrowed Jim’s copy of Band of Brothers like a month ago, and finally got around to watching the first disc tonight.
Wow. This is a very very engaging show – the thing for me that really hit home the beginning of each episode… they interview some of the real solders who were part of Easy Company, the paratrooper jump team. That really hits it home for me personally, these stories aren’t just something some writer has invented, but events people actually went through.
It’s hard for me to fathom what these guys went through. What everyone went through and goes through in all the wars humanity has been through.
