Show generally

Corrected entry: Doc Roe is supposed to be a southerner, but he sounds like he's from Boston or such. I am from Mississippi and I have never heard any true southerner talk like that.

Correction: Doc Roe is from Louisiana, he states that he is cajun, and that is how "Cajun" people sound.

Show generally

Corrected entry: For the jump into Normandy, the C-47s had their doors removed. This is shown when the paratroopers are chuting up and when they're in flight, yet when the planes are taking off the doors are back on the aircraft.

Correction: Not all of the doors were taken off, the paratroopers had a choice to ride with the doors open to smoke, and closed to reduce the noise. Smoking with closed doors was regarded as a hazard, as the smoke would need to vent.

Carentan - S1-E3

Factual error: 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.

Guarnere: Jesus Christ, we gotta do all this with a C.O. who has his head so far up his fuckin' ass, that lump in his throat is his goddamn nose.

Answer: To mess with him. A lot of the "regular" soldiers didn't respect or even like Webster early on because he was a college boy. That dislike and lack of respect was deepened when Webster took what they perceived to be an extended stay in hospital after being wounded when many of their other comrades - Popeye for example - left hospital early to get back with their friends to fight.
