3.0 out of 5 stars History of 101st AIRBORNE NOT reference to Band of Brothers, 6 Mar. 2011
By 
This review is from: The Real Band Of Brothers [DVD] (DVD)
This DVD is a historical account of the 101st Airborne as a whole.

The main accounts in the this DVD (The Real Band of Brothers) are from men who joined the 101st Airborne 2yrs after the likes of LT Richard Winters and E company were conceived. In saying this I take nothing from the men commenting on the part they played in WW2 or their involvement in the 101st airborne as all those who gallantly fought in WW2 deserve recognition of the sacrifices they made.

However if you buy this DVD based on the above review thinking it will give the ins and outs of E company and Lt Richard Winters forget it. This is a DVD around the history of the 101st Airborne as a whole and does not refer to any particular company. Nor are their any comments from members of E company. The DVD doesnt even comment on the 101st conception or anything relating to training in TOCCOA and Currahee.

THIS DVD IS A HISTORICAL ACCOUNT OF THE 101st AIRBORNE and should be re-titled as such NOT labelled the real band of brothers.

Thank you. The last sentence says it all and saved me from making a misguided purchase.
