Replacements - S1-E4

Corrected entry: During the retreat from the town near Eindhoven, Buck Compton instructs a soldier to take out an MG42, which is on a rooftop at medium to long range, using a rifle grenade. The soldier aims simply by propping the rifle against the ground and firing (with his head down). The grenade hits almost perfectly, an unlikely outcome. (00:36:00)

Correction: A rifle grenade often used ranges marked out by the angle of the rifle. The sling would be used to determine this angle. The soldier could use his sling to determine the angle at the range he guessed the machine gun to be at.

Replacements - S1-E4

Corrected entry: When they are suiting up for the Market Garden jump, Bull tells Garcia to "lose the reserve, we're jumping low," which is very untrue. The Market Garden was planned as a jump from 1000 to 1250 feet, which is higher than they did many of their qualifying jumps from.

Correction: As the saying goes: "nothing survives first contact"; the pilots could have changed the height, from that first briefed back at base, due to any number of reasons.

Replacements - S1-E4

Corrected entry: In part 4, 'The Replacements,' when the MG-42 starts firing after the first Sherman is hit, it stops and starts continually and flashes when the gun isn't firing.

Correction: All of the shooting in this mini-series, is done stylistically, as if you are actually present there in combat with them. Thus having certain times (as in the case with Tipper in Carentan) the sound is muffled. When a machine gun opens up on you, you don't hear every single shot. Especially when it is on top of a building, and there are obstacles in your path of hearing.

2nd Lt. Thomas Peacock: Holy shit.

Sgt. Martin: No shit.



In this episode we see Blithe get shot in the neck and are told that he died in 1948. In reality he was shot in the shoulder and survived. He later served in Korea and was promoted to master sergeant as well as receiving the paratrooper of the year award. Blithe died in 1967 while on active duty in Germany.



In the scene where the Red Devils toast the 101st Airborne, when the camera shows the assembled soldiers you'll see Tom Hanks as one of the Red Devils in a beret at the back left (5 or 6 men in) with his right hand on his hip. His head moves forwards to become obscured behind another soldier.
