  • Trivia

    • Trivia: In real life, Dick Winters kept the pistol given to him by the surrendering German officer. He noticed that it had never been fired through six years of war. He still owns the pistol and it has still never been fired. He shows it to the camera in the HBO documentary We Stand Alone Together.

  • Quotes

    • Winters: Listen up. You ready for it? (pause) German Army surrendered.

    • Sink: Kids, I just had a conversation with General LeClerc. He told me he was first into Paris, and by God, he wanted to be first into Berchtesgaden. I told him I understood his point. Now you fire up Second Battalion and out-flank that French son of a bitch!

    • Shifty Powers: Back home in Virginia... I don't rightly know how I'm going to explain all this. I've seen...
      Winters: You're a hell of a fine soldier, Shifty. Nothing more to explain.

    • Harry: (stealing cutlery from the Berchtesgaden villa) Kitty is gonna love this. How many brides get a wedding present from Hitler?

    • (Talking about post-war plans)
      Nixon: What'd you think you'll do after this?
      Winters: I don't know, probably get some breakfast.

    • German General: (addressing his troops) Men, it's been a long war, it's been a tough war. You've fought bravely, proudly for your country. You're a special group. You've found in one another a bond, that exists only in combat, among brothers. You've shared foxholes, held each other in dire moments. You've seen death and suffered together. I'm proud to have served with each and every one of you. You all deserve long and happy lives in peace.

    • (Maj. Winters salutes to Capt. Sobel and another soldier)
      Maj. Winters: Captain Soebel.
      Capt. Sobel: (nods) Major Winters.
      Maj. Winters: Captain Sobel. We salute the rank, not the man.
      (Capt. Sobel formally salutes and walks away)
