Just finished rewatching Band of Brothers. What a fascinating bit of history. Great photo!
Nowadays everyone would have a smartphone out…
Edit: I’m guessing the downvotes coming from said people
The photo wasn’t taken at Eagle’s Nest but about 3 miles northwest of there from a house near the Dietrich Eckart Krankenhaus:
Compare to this modern photo taken from near the house:
"Remember boys, flies spread disease; so keep yours closed" ~ George Luz
He didn’t live at the Eagles Nest (~Kielsteinhaus). He used it a couple times. You can go visit, but his actual residence was destroyed in the war
Can anyone assign names to them?
I hope they wiped there feet on the way out.
the by sitting in the middle looks like nixon
I recommend the HBO adaptation called Band of Brothers, great series!
DO NOT FORGET THE FRENCH :D, who were also there to drink hitler entire wine reserve
Where’s Nix’s Vat 69?
Dick Winters is also an author who’s written about his experience with Easy Company. Jocko Willink has a podcast episode dedicated to Dick Winters’ story, Podcast #75: Guidelines for Leadership and Honesty, Dependability, Discipline and Fairness. “Conversations w/ Dick Winters”. I highly recommend checking out the podcast if you’re interested and don’t have time to read the full book.
I finished watching Band of Brothers yesterday, now it’s my favourite series.

Still one of the best series I’ve seen on tv.. Band of Brothers
Is there any books on this exact invasion or battle… did they meet any resistance how many soldiers were killed? I’d love to here some real account’s of emotions going through these men before during and after they seized the compound.
What a group. I feel like I’m one of the boys after watching BoB so many times. Like I know their stories and where they’ve been and where they’ll go.
Such a great pic. This had to have been peak emotions.
Is that guy in the middle on his smartphone?
I just rewatched band of brothers. It’s weird watching a show from back then. Tv has come a long way.
I live in South Jersey and was at a Flyers game in 2003 or so on Veterans Day. They had Bill Guarnere and Babe Heffron (both from Philly) bring the flags out and the ovation they got was great. I mean like goosebumps, almost tear inducing, a really cool memory.
If it’s colorized, how’d they know to make the dude on the right a soulless ginger?
The guy kneeling, 5th from the left, is on his damn iPhone. I’d love to see what he was posting.
This is the Kehlsteinhaus which Hitler got in the late 30’es. He only visited the house 5 times due to his fear of heights.
He preferred to stay at the Berghof which was at a lower altitude.
You can visit the Kehlsteinhaus yourself if you go to Germany, it’s a tourist attraction now with a cozy little restaurant.
The view is absolutely breathtaking.
Oh, how cool! I’m literally watching Band of Brothers for the first time right now. Seeing this pic makes it kind of surreal.
These antifa demonstrations are getting out of hand!
I see Don Malarkey!! I had the pleasure of meeting him at USCG Small Boat Station Cape Disappointment Across from Astoria Oregon.
His stories were great!! And his name does in fact mean Bullshit!!
These guys are legends!!!
What’s crazy about these guys is that they didn’t even start to get famous until Ambrose’s book came out in 1992. The 101st was a well-known unit but not Easy 2/506.
I love the series and re-watch it often. My only issue is that for too many, this is all they know of WWII and they have the impression that these guys won the war all by themselves and that they were by far the best unit in the Army.
And I know they said it in the series and because everyone loves the series and these guys they believe it too so what I’m about to say will go against the grain but…Patton 100% rescued the 101st and the 100% needed rescuing.
What Patton’s 3rd Army accomplished during the Battle of the Bulge is one of the most astonishing and incredible feats of arms in the history of warfare.
Every time this is posted it never had the right caption.
