Band Of Brothers: Why Easy Company Have Spades On Their Helmets

Reading now: 940

Throughout Band of Brothers, Easy Company can be seen with spades on their helmets, and there's a valid historical reason for this detail.

The HBO miniseries Band of Brothers first aired back in 2001, based on Stephen E. Ambrose's non-fiction book of the same name.

Following the men of "Easy" Company, 2nd Battalion, 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment of the 101st Airborne Divison, Band of Brothers chronicles the men's journey from the early days of their training right up to the end of World War II.

The sprawling nature of the miniseries meant that Band of Brothers' cast was expansive — and even featured several future stars early in their careers.
