Great Book. Excellent. I can not describe in words how good this book is. This is a book that you can not put down. I started reading it and just could not stop reading. I have seen Band of Brothers and read a lot of books concerning Easy Company and this is the only book that made me cry. Shifty will be greatly missed by everyone. He was a wonderful person and a great soldier. I am still looking for other memoirs concerning Easy Company.
