I'm glad someone is picking this up. I rewatched the whole series fairly recently.

I have the box set, just waiting for me to rewatch, so this may be the kick I need.

Side note: the Call of Duty computer game (and in my peronal opinion the best of the franchise) has an episode labelled Carentan and the town is partially modelled after the town in this series.

The scene when they start attacking the town always stuck with me. At that point most of them are still not seasoned in combat so they're naturally all ducking down and hiding. Winters gets up and literally kicks them to get them going and then they're running towards machine gun fire. I don't know too many things but I do know I'd have been one of the ones hiding and I'm not sure I'd have gotten up no matter how hard you kicked me.
