Band of Brothers is a HBO miniseries(10 part) produced by Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg.
The story is focused on a 101st Airborne division paradropped behind enemy lines to assist landings at Utah beach. The series also covers landings in Normandy, Operation Market Garden, the battle of Bastogne and liberation of a German concentration camp. The events portrayed in the series are breathtaking and will engulf your attention very quickly. Despite it's total runtime is 10 hours, it does not reveals all American campaigns of northern Europe rather it features true stories of soldiers of E company (Easy company).
Another thing I liked was the camera operation of providing a first person view of diving into foxholes and jumping behind trees. The audio and video of the series is just too good. The environment is a ear shattering with bombs exploding in all directions. The footage and interview of actual survivors and intercourse of their experience was another successful stroke of the mini series.
Overall, Band of Brothers is a fascinating story of brotherhood and a tale of ordinary men with extraordinary courage.
