Crossroads - S1-E5

Corrected entry: Winters sits at an outdoor cafe while on leave in Paris in December before the Battle of the Bulge. Even though it's late fall, a tree in the background has green leaves and no one is wearing a coat suitable for that time of year when it is cold.

Correction: The military wasn't ready for winter battle. Almost no enlisted man had adequate clothing before and during the battle of the bulge. This information is revealed in the book as well as the end of this episode and the beginning of the episode "Bastogne"

Crossroads - S1-E5

Corrected entry: When Winters is in his office and Nixon is telling him he's off to Paris, there are three people present, Richard Winters, Lewis Nixon and Harry Welsh. At the very end of the scene, someone says "Second that" but the subtitles say BOB: "Second that." There is no-one in the room called Bob.


Correction: While this may be a mistake, there is no one that is supposed to be named Bob in the shot. The BOB refers to Band of Brothers. Generally, subtitles like that are not considered mistakes for the movie.

Crossroads - S1-E5

Corrected entry: In the episode "Crossroads" when Easy company is charging across the field, you can see the actors' mouths open as if they are yelling but there is no sound.

Correction: This is a deliberate artistic decision on the part of the film-makers. The reason being is that there is an emphasis on the other sounds, like feet pounding on the ground as the rest of the platoon is running after Winters. It is supposed to be silent until he shoots the German child, and then you start hearing other sounds.

Crossroads - S1-E5

Corrected entry: When Winters shoots the SS kid at the start of the episode, we see a close-up of his face and gun and when he shoots we can see the bayonet on the end of his gun wobble as if it was made of rubber.

Correction: The bayonet is wobbling back and forth, yes, but this is due to the slightly loose joint attaching it to the gun - if you look carefully, the bayonet itself isn't bending in any way, it's just moving slightly around its joint.

Crossroads - S1-E5

Corrected entry: In part 5, crossroads, when they are firing on the Polish and the SS companies, you see the left side of the 30-cal machine gun. As it fires you see shells dropping out of the outer side. This shouldn't happen because that would indicate a disintegrating belt, but they didn't come into use until the 1960's so the rounds from the gun should be in a belt.

Correction: The machine gun has to strip a round off the belt to be fed into the chamber. The belt itself does not disintegrate, but there is no way for the gun to put the fired casing back in the belt.

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.
