December 24, 1944, north of Bastogne, Belgium.
Within the Bois Jacques forest, paratroopers of Easy Company, 506th P.I.R., 101st Airborne, filter back to their foxholes having repelled an attack earlier in the day. On this frigid Christmas Eve, Captain Dick Winters supports his men with his words: "Hang Tough." Despite being surrounded and ill-equipped, the Band of Brothers would hold the line. Ultimately, the 101st Airborne would help turn the tide in the Battle of the Bulge.
