Easy Company, otherwise known as the Band of Brothers, was a part of the 101st Airbourne Division, which was extremely active during WWII. The 101st Airbourne Division was created in 1918, and the Band of Brothers formed in the early 1940s as the Second World War came to a climax. Easy Company was formed to directly support allied European war fronts, and this regiment endured one of the most significant soldier casualty rates during WWII. The real history of WWII's Band of Brothers is a story of courage, bravery, and a group of men who did everything they could to save their country.
