The author of We Who Are Alive and Remain presents remembrances from the families of the soldiers of Easy Company

A Company of Heroes is an intimate, revealing portrait of the lives of the men who fought for our freedom during some of the darkest days the world has ever known-men who returned home with a newfound wisdom and honor that they passed on to their families and who continue to inspire new generations of Americans.

Compiled from the veterans' notes, journals, letters, photographs, and the author's personally conducted interviews with the surviving contributors, this unique volume features the never-before-told stories of the Band of Brothers from more than twenty children and other family members.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Praise for A Company of Heroes

“A valuable look at what made a generation truly great. If you're a fan of HBO's Band of Brothers, you'll want to read this fascinating book…Tremendous insights here to the back-stories of Easy Company's hard-fighting heroes.”—Dale Dye, Capt. USMC (Ret), Senior Military Advisor, HBO's Band of Brothers

“Why one more book on the most documented and covered company in the history of WWII? After reading Brotherton’s book where the family members finally get the chance to open up and share the horrors of war from their point of view, it only makes sense and completes the biggest part of the puzzle…This is a must read for everyone. Currahee!”—Jake Powers, Official E/506th Historian
