On this day in 1944, the 101st Airborne is surrounded at Bastogne.
Looks like someone's found a reason to re-watch certain Battle of the Bulge episodes from Band of Brothers today.
I watched the whole series again this summer. It was notable for how many men were killed by mistakes or accidents. You don't see that in John Wayne movies as much. That series was very well done and hewed closely to the actual events. I knew a couple of veterans of the Battle of the Bulge.

We're Airborne - we're supposed to be surrounded!
The one thing that bothered me about the Band of Brothers Bastone episodes was Jimmy Fallon's brief cameo. Sorry but it does.
