Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Dietz provides an impressive, respectful rendering of this walk in the footsteps of Easy Company soldiers." —-Library Journal Starred Audio Review
Library Journal
Alexander, author of the New York Times best seller Biggest Brother (2005), takes listeners on a dramatic journey through the history of the legendary Easy Company, 101st Airborne. Accompanying him throughout is Easy Company's Sgt. Forrest Guth, who contributes his own commentary and explanations. (Sadly, Guth died prior to the book's publication.) Part historical memoir and part travelog, this fascinating material also includes input from other members of Easy Company. Following the resounding success of the HBO miniseries Band of Brothers, this revisiting of most of the Easy Company battle sites brings home the horrific reality of combat and the courage of the young soldiers enmeshed in the conflicts. Narrator Norman Dietz (Power, Faith, and Fantasy) provides an impressive, respectful rendering of this walk in the footsteps of Easy Company soldiers that will recall for today's generation the heroic contribution of U.S. soldiers in World War II. Highly recommended.—Dale Farris, Groves, TX
