  • One of the few episodes that can be missed but shouldnt because of the topic.

    This episode is not for the faint at heart. This episode deals mainly with the concentration camps and the crimes committed there. I like how it shows how shocking to even Easy Company's men the sight before them. The horrors of a battlefield seemed pale in comparison to what they witnessed there. I don't think anyone can recreate the actual conditions but the message was well delivered. What I also like was the local Germans that lived near the town were oblivious to what was happening near by. In all with no fighting sequences this was a very touching episode.
