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.
We’re raiding the archives of the largest history festival in the world, the Chalke Valley History Festival, which every summer draws in some of the very best and most eminent historians in the UK and beyond. Recorded on location in south-west Wiltshire, each talk is presented by historian and festival director, James Holland, and features an incredible array of subjects and personalities.
