Band of Brothers

TV Show • 2001 • Drama  

Report
Drawn from interviews with survivors of Easy Company, as well as their journals and letters, Band of Brothers chronicles the experiences of these men from paratrooper training in Georgia through the end of the war. As an elite rifle company parachuting into Normandy early on D-Day morning, participants in the Battle of the Bulge, and witness to the horrors of war, the men of Easy knew extraordinary bravery and extraordinary fear - and became the stuff of legend. Based on Stephen E. Ambrose's acclaimed book of the same name.

In episode 6, while out on patrol, a soldier is hit in the neck after being ordered to leave cover, and struggles to breathe for the next few minutes. The other soldiers are shown to be shaken up by this. One of the most graphic parts of the entire series.

Yes, multiple men are shown getting their legs or arms blasted off. The main ones that come to mind are in episode 3, when a soldier hit with a bomb during the main battle for Carentan. 3 other soldiers are shown with their legs being blown off respectively across the Battle of the Bulge episodes during German artillery bombing raids. (6 - 7)

In episode 1, Sobel assigns Winters to mess duty, and informs him that he'll be preparing a dish of spaghetti for the men. The scene after depicts the soldiers eating the spaghetti, and then being told to run Currahee. The sequence after shows many of the men vomiting as they run.

This is the only instance in the series, none of the runs before or after show anyone vomiting, and none of the scenes in which soldiers are in or jumping out of planes depict vomiting either. These men are well-trained and for the most part keep their cool in and before combat. Some wounded men are shown spitting up blood, however, in small amounts, and easily skippable.
