Overview

THE "MUST-READ"* BOOK THAT INSPIRED THE EXTRAORDINARY DOCUMENTARY FOR PUBLIC TELEVISION

After the Band of Brothers went home, they never forgot the lessons of war...

After chronicling the personal stories of the Band of Brothers in We Who Are Alive and Remain, author Marcus Brotherton presents a collection of remembrances from the families of the soldiers of Easy Company—and how their wartime experiences shaped their lives off the battlefield.

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 onto their families, and that continue to inspire new generations of Americans.

*Jake Powers, Official E/506th Historian
