    A Superior Book on Duty, Honor, and Bravery

    Truly regretful that it has taken so long for the story of these brave men to be told. I will soon conclude reading this book twice. The last chapter on leadership is inspiring and might be the best section in the book. The world owes a great deal to men like Dick Winters, William Guarnere, Carwood Lipton,and countless others whose names we will never know. If you liked 'Band of Brothers' by Steven Ambrose, you will like this book more!

    Thanks to the Greatest Generation !!!

    I have long considered myself a student of history, and wiith my father having served with the 1st Infantry Division in WWII books dealing with the average GI have the most interest for me. Like many others my wife and I watched the fine HBO film 'Band of Brothers' by Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks, I then rushed out and purchased the book. This year my wife gave me Major Winters novel and I found it extremely well written. First of all I want to take this opportunity to thank Major Winters, and all the men of Easy Company for all they did to give us the freedoms we all share today! Major Winters has given us a outstanding piece of history as seen from the eyes of the average soldier, done in a manner that is such an easy read and yet is so compelling you can barely put it down. I STRONGLY SUGGEST that ANYONE who ENJOYS books based on WWII to READ this one!

    If you enjoyed "Band of Brothers" then read this book

    Major Winters fills in the details of Easy Company's trek from boot camp to the end of World War II. He was respected by his men and I think you will get an insight to why they followed him in battle.

    A great book

    Dick Winters is a great American war hero and tells an expanded account of his duties, trials, and tribulations in his time during WWII. I thought this book was a great read and I really appreciate his follow up to the Stephen E. Ambrose book- Band of Brothers.

    Very good book on World War II soldiers

    After watching the HBO series Band of Brothers I wanted to read more about airborne soldiers of World War II. This was a great book that told many of the same stories told in the tv series, with a lot more in depth stories about all of the characters. It is well written and has some decent photos to go along with it.

    Perfect!

    I am a huge, huge fan of all of the Band of Brothers books, movies, mini series, you name it. I love how it depicts not only life on a personal level, but the love and respect that these men had for each other during the war and still to this day. I highly recommend it to everyone but particularly to those interested in the history of war.

    Inspiring!

    Dick Winters is part of a generation we all should emulate. This book is a welcome addition to Band of Brothers and has inspired me to read more from and about the men who helped save the world in the 1940's. These men are heroes even though if you ask them they will say they just had a job to do and did it. Every person who has an opportunity to meet someone who fought in WWII should feel privileged and thank them for their sacrifices.
