From the beginning of the series I was drawn to Eugene Roe. As a Cajun myself, I was glad to see one of my people presented as something other than a cartoonish stereotype. My Godfather was fighting in Europe at about the same time this was taking place so the episode had special significance.
Shane Taylor is fabulous as Roe. I was shocked when I found out that he was British. His accent was excellent and he could teach others who try to do a Cajun dialect a thing or two. The scenes with the Belgian nurse are beautiful and heart breaking at the same time. The moment they have while sharing the chocolate bar after loosing the soldier to an internal bleeder was pure understated brilliance. I'm not ashamed to say I cried like a baby while watching this episode. I was very proud to be American in general and Cajun in particular.
