To mark Band of Brothers 20 year anniversary, History Hit WW2 podcast brought back Chalke Valley History Festival’s brilliant talk with Damian Lewis here or click on the player below. Twenty years after it first aired, Band of Brothers continues to be remembered as a remarkably accurate portrayal of a US parachute infantry company in the European Theater during the Second World War. Damian Lewis is an English actor and producer who played U.S. Army Major Richard Winters in the HBO miniseries Band of Brothers. At the Chalke Valley History Festival in 2016, he discussed the making of this series, portraying a soldier in the Second World War and meeting the veterans.
It's crazy to think that Band of Brothers is now 20 years old! For me, it is still one of the best, and most accurate, war series ever made. To mark this anniversary we have brought back this brilliant talk by @lewis_damian for @CVHISTORYFEST:
