Norman Dike

30 Days Band of Brothers Challenge

Day 2 Least Favorite Character: 1st Lt. Norman Dike. I debating between Sobel or Dike, but Sobel’s strict rules and harsh demands actually helped Easy Company. Dike did nothing beneficial for the men. He got so many Easy Company men killed or injured because he has absolutely no leadership skills. He left his post, and walked off so often, leaving Lipton and Buck and Johnny to help lead the men. He couldn’t even make a damn decision! One of the worst things I can think of about him, is that he completely froze up on his men, and left them sitting ducks. I’m just so glad Easy had Lipton to lead the men.
