Dick Winters: Hang Tough
HONORING LEADERSHIP ON D-DAY
a documentary film
In the year 2000, actor Damian Lewis was chosen to portray a humble WW II veteran named Dick Winters in "Band of Brothers." Lewis called the television role “a defining moment in my life” that provided him “an opportunity to portray a humble man whom I came to admire and respect.”
In this documentary, Dick Winters: “Hang Tough,” Damian Lewis lends his voice and thoughts to a film honoring one of World War II’s finest and most respected combat leaders: Richard D. Winters.
From his early days in Ephrata, Pennsylvania, to the famed attack on Brecourt Manor on D-Day, to the dedication on June 6, 2012 of the Richard D. Winters Leadership Monument in Normandy, France, Lewis describes the process with which Dick Winters prepared himself to be a leader with heroic results on June 6, 1944 in Normandy.
