Product Description

Based on the bestseller by Stephen E. Ambrose, the epic 10-part miniseries 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 and fascinating tale of comradeship that is, in the end, a tale of ordinary men who did extraordinary things. Packed in a 6-disc gift box collection, The Band of Brothers DVD box set features interviews with the veterans, cast and crew and the making of the HBO series.

Additional Features

HBO's impressive miniseries may have the most handsome DVD packaging to date: a tin container enclosing the accordion sleeves holding six discs. The extras on the set are just as classy. Besides the rudimentary 30-minute making-of, there's an hour's worth of video diaries by actor Ron Livingston (who portrays Lewis Nixon) detailing the tough "actors' boot camp." The first-person recollections of the real Easy Company soldiers that begin each episode are expanded in the 80-minute documentary We Stand Alone Together. The real footage and heartfelt recollections complement the series, but viewers may want more interaction between the lifelong friends. The documentary is better in the final minutes, when the veterans are not talking about the specific incidents depicted in the film. Another big help in this set is the "field guide," a dossier of maps, glossary, definitions of ranks, a timeline, and a who's who for each episode. --Doug Thomas

An Epic Tale of War

Band of Brothers is an award-winning 10-part HBO series. It follows Easy Company, the 506th Regiment of the 101st Airborne Division, through its mission in World War II’s European theater from D-Day to V-J Day. Based on interviews with survivors, along with soldiers' journals and letters, Band of Brothers shares the experiences of these legendary men as they displayed extraordinary bravery and faced unimaginable fear.

Trivia

Most of the actors were chosen based on their resemblance to the soldiers they would be portraying.

To ensure authenticity, all the scripts were reviewed by real-life Easy Company soldiers.

The actors were put through an intense 10-day 'boot camp' to prepare for their roles and were required to stay in character the entire time.

The miniseries included 500 different speaking roles.

Historic Battles Brought to Life

  • Based on the best seller by Stephen E. Ambrose
  • Presented by Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg
  • Nearly 12 action-packed hours of absorbing military drama
  • The complete series, plus tons of bonus material
  • A beautiful six-DVD gift-box collection

Meet the Cast

Major Richard 'Dick' Winters (Damian Lewis)

The leader of Easy Company, Winters was a calm and collected leader who was greatly respected by his men. He eventually was put in command of the entire 2nd Battalion.

Captain Lewis Nixon (Ron Livingston)

Nixon was a hard-drinking soldier who liked a good time. But when the company needed him, he was always there. He never fired a shot during the war.

2nd Lieutenant C. Carwood Lipton (Donnie Wahlberg)

Lipton was a commissioned officer in Easy Company. His strength was in keeping morale high and pushing the men to reach their full potential.

Captain Herbert M. Sobel (David Schwimmer)

Strict, uncompromising and sometimes even vindictive, Captain Sobel was disliked by the entire company, but their mutual dislike is what united them in basic training.

That modesty and that sentiment seems to be shared by all the survivors of Easy Company, 506th PRI, and many of them can't hold back the tears as they mumble it. One of the great benefits of this marvelous series was the closeup interviews of the real men portrayed, those wonderful old seamed faces, breaking at last with emotion as they recall their experiences and the love of their comrades and the pain of loss of other friends. It moves me greatly, and I'm glad the Extras in this set has an extended documentary re-tracing the time-frame of the film with these real veterans recalling the action we've seen re-created.

Brought with loving care and fanatic attention to detail by producers Steven Spielberg & Tom Hanks and their carefully chosen band of producers, directors and actors, this is an unsentimental, near-documentary telling of the story of Easy Co. from training to D-Day, Hedge Row fighting, Operation Market Garden, Bastogne, into Germany, liberation of Death Camps, and the capture of Berchesgarden & Hitler's Eagle's Nest.

Throughout it all, the aim has been to tell it straight and get it right. They have done so in remarkable style. The truth HAS enough drama, and the various episodes reveal it. We get to know these men and care about them. We marvel at their endurance and the way they go about getting the job done, professionally, and with matter-of-fact, everyday courage. It is a true tribute to the Citizen Soldiers who won the war.

With 10 episodes and lots of extra goodies, presented within an exceptional package, there is just too much to review here.

Band of Brothers is an awe inspiring and visually stunning tribute, not only to Easy Company, 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment, 101st Airborne Division, but to the "Greatest Generation." But for their sacrifices, would we share the freedoms we so cherish and covet to our vests today! Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg deserve all of the awards and accolades they received for bringing this epic to HBO and now this incredible DVD box set!
Part 1 - Currahee - Currahee is a wonderful beginning to this unprecedented HBO miniseries. Outside of the movie "Saving Private Ryan" there has never before been such a realistic series such as this one. Currahee poignantly highlights the training that was necessary for the newly designed Airborne Infantry. While some may think that Captain Sobel was a complete idiot, in all truth, his combat skills were obviously lacking however, as a trainer, he put Easy Company in a very good position as a well trained unit.
Part 2 - Day of Days - D-Day has arrived and Easy Company makes the jump that they've been preparing two years for. As history unfolds, the German flak has caused nearly every plane to miss their designated drop zone. 1LT Winters finds he's in Normandy, lost his weapon and his company. He finally arrives at the assembly area and is given the mission to take out a German artillery position. Day of Days is an excellent episode that doesn't miss out on 1LT Winters depth of emotions as he loses his first soldier in combat.
Part 3 - Carentan - Easy Company is ordered in to take the French village of Carentan. While encountering only minor resistance, they take light casualties. After successfully taking the town, they're ordered to move on to the next objective. En route, they encounter the German force sent to retake Carentan.

Format: Blu-ray
I have to say that this series blew me away. I was so impressed with the effort put into Saving Private Ryan to give it a documentary look and feel. Band Of Brothers falls from the same tree. Once again, Hanks and Spielberg reunite to produce this epic cable series of WW2 as told by the men themselves. Every episode has interviews from the soldiers who were there. Very realistic and emotional stuff.

First off, the set comes in a metal box with fold out style disk holders. Exactly like the standard dvd edtion a few years ago.

The Blu-Ray edition has 6 disks total. 2 episodes per disk on the first 5 with many, many extras on number 6.

The quality of the picture is perfect. These films were shot with tons of natural grain for that documentary style look. The lenses also give the look of a 40's camera used in the field. Although the film itself is washed out and very rough, it has awesome detail. You will notice so many things going on in the background. The size of the shots sometimes leave you in awe. The blacks are sometimes unstable, but that is the intent. The daytime scenes are beautiful in their full scope. The greatest thing about this series is the uncompromising attention to detail. From the uniforms to the weapons. The skintones are spot on and very nice looking with great detail. The majority of these episodes were shot outdoors. So, the landscapes look fantastic! From the coast of France, to the mountains of Austria, this has some amazing and beautiful scenery. While the picture may be " washed out ", it looks and feels just as you would expect from the point of view from a combat photographer. The battle scenes are simply unbelievable. It takes you to a new level realism.

The sound is second to none.

RIP Major Winters
Was unaware until (3/4/2011) - as I happened to be glancing through the Amazon offering of Band Of Brothers DVD's - that the real Major Richard (Dick) Winters past away on January 2, 2011. It immediately brought to my own mind and emotions again, just how "mortal" we all really are. ... Read More

I'm a former Vietnam-era Marine. Don't worry about the language used because, for combat ground-pounders, it is considerably censored. This series is one of the best that I've ever watched, and as real as it gets "on-screen".

Thank you, but I DO have the closed captions option on my TV turned on. Now what? I tried asking HBO directly but all they told me was to turn on the non-existing menu option for closed captioning.
