Band of Brothers

Monday, November 11, 2019

Band of Brothers, mini-series began on 9 Sept 2001 for 10 episodes.
Executive Directors Steven Spielberg & Tom Hanks(who had collaborated on Saving Private Ryan, a 1998 WWII movie). It was based on the book, Band of Brothers, written by historian Stephen E. Ambrose in 1992. The series followed the men of “Easy” Company, 2nd Battalion, 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment, of the 101st Airborne Division, from basic training & jump training in the US through major actions in Europe through the end of the war with the surrender of Japan. Real soldiers, real war, real interviews, not all survived.




Requiem for a Soldier, from Band of Brothers mini-series, Amici Forever



You never lived to see
What you gave to me
One shining dream of hope and love
Life and liberty


(When the pin is pulled, Mr. grenade is not your friend)

With a host of brave unknown soldiers
For your company, you will live forever
Here in our memory
In fields of sacrifice



Heroes paid the price
Young men who died for old men's wars
Gone to paradise
We are all one great band of brothers



And one day you'll see we can live together
When all the world is free
I wish you'd lived to see
All you gave to me


(With out mercy.
Without compassion.
Without remorse.
War depends upon it.)

Your shining dream of hope and love
Life and liberty
We are all one great band of brothers
And one day you'll see - we can live together
When all the world is free
