Band of Brothers – Episode Six – Bastogne
As Easy Company engages in the Battle of the Bulge, the focus shifts to medic Eugene Roe (Shane Taylor) as he struggles not only to survive, but to keep his brothers alive as well. With the fighting near Bastogne growing more perilous with every passing moment and supplies running low, Eugene and a local nurse must do their best to stem the tide of death or risk losing themselves to it. This installment of Band of Brothers offered John Richards the opportunity to edit alongside director David Leland (Wish You Were Here, The Land Girls) to produce one of the show’s highest rated episodes.
