Easy Company's next objective is to take the town of Carenten where they engage in street to street fighting with a doggedly determined enemy. The fighting is hard and there are many casualties. Having pushed the Germans out, Easy Company now has to hold the position and soon face a counter-attack from German forces, including artillery and tanks. For Pvt. Albert Blythe, the pressure and stress pushes him to the breaking point. He even suffers from hysterical blindness but soon recovers with a few words of encouragement from Winters. After 36 days in battle, Easy Company is finally relieved and get to return to their base in England.
