Band of Brothers + The Pacific Set [BluRay]
World War II was such a world-changing event that no miniseries — let alone two-hour movie — could ever capture its full import. But that doesn’t stop these two from trying. The Band of Brothers & The Pacific Set ($135) puts both award-winning, 10-part miniseries in the same box, letting you catch a glimpse of the conflict from both shores while garnering a new respect for the men and women who lived through it. Features include 13 total discs — including special features for both series — and crystal-clear hi-def picture and sound. This title will be released on November 8, 2011.
Band of Brothers - Part 7 ; “The Breaking Point”- I’ve seen the States, I grew up there. That’s why I came to Europe. I just wish somebody had told me there was a war on.
They hardly could have been more different. Winters grew up in a middle-class home; Nixon’s father was fabulously wealthy. Winters had not gotten out of Pennsylvania in his teenage years; Nixon had lived in various parts of Europe. Winters was a graduate of a small college; Nixon came from Yale. Winters never drank; Nixon was an alcoholic. But they were the closest of friends because what they had in common was a dedication to the job at hand and a remarkable ability to do just that. Every member of Easy interviewed for this book said Winters was the best combat commander he ever saw, while Nixon was the most brilliant staff officer he knew in the war.
Stephen S. Ambrose, Band of Brothers
(Replacement) Have a lot of you guys been injured?
(Martin) It’s called “wounded,” Peanut. “Injured” is when you fall out of a tree or something.
(Muck) Don’t worry, there’s so much crap flying around, you’re bound to get dinged sometime. Almost every one of these guys got hit at least once. Except for Alley, he’s a two-timer. He landed on broken glass in Normandy, and got peppered by a potato masher. Now, Bull…he got a piece of exploding tank in Holland. Now George Luz here… has never been hit. You’re one lucky bastard.
(Luz) Takes one to know one, Skip.
(Muck) Huh, consider us blessed. Now Liebgott, the skinny little guy? He got pinged in the neck in Holland. And right next to him, the other skinny little guy, that’s Popeye. He got shot in his scrawny little butt in Normandy.
(Malarkey) And, uh, Buck got shot in his rather large butt in Holland.
(Penkala) Yeah, kind of an Easy Company tradition, getting shot in the ass.
