The History Channel observes Memorial Day weekend with a marathon broadcast of the epic 2001 HBO miniseries “Band of Brothers” (until Monday morning, History). Based on Stephen E. Ambrose’s popular book, “Band” was produced by Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks, who collaborated on the 1998 D-Day epic “Saving Private Ryan.”

“Band” follows the “Easy” Company regiment from training through the invasion of Normandy, the Battle of the Bulge, the liberation of concentration camps and the defeat of Nazi Germany in 1945.
