Marc Warren in Band of Brothers
 
Private Albert Blithe
   

Albert Blithe was born in 1923 and grew up in the Philadelphia suburbs. After completing his schooling (in High School), he decides to volunteer in the Army in early 1942. He will then volunteer in the paratroopers and then trains in the Easy Company at Camp Toccoa, where he successfully completes his "basic training".

Wounded in June 1944 in Normandy, Albert Blithe died in a hospital in Germany after a malaise in Belgium in 1967. He is buried at the American Military Cemetery in Arlington, Pennsylvania.

In "Band of Brothers", it is reported that Albert Blithe died in 1948 because of his 1944 wounds, but in truth his brothers in arms, not having heard from him, just thought he died three years after the end of the war in Europe.

The character of Albert Blithe is interpreted in the film Band of Brothers - Brothers in Arms by the actor Marc Warren (picture above).
