They were called Easy Company, but their mission was never easy. Immortalized as the Band of Brothers, they suffered 150% casualties while liberating Europe, an unparalleled record of bravery under fire. Dick Winters was their commander, and this is his story based on his wartime diary. Only Winters was present from the activation of Easy Company until the war's end. On D-Day, Dick Winters parachuted into France and assumed leadership of the company when their commander was killed. He led them through the Battle of the Bulge and into Germany, where they liberated an S.S. death camp from the horrors of the Holocaust and captured Berchtesgaden, Hitler's alpine retreat. After briefly serving during the Korean War, Winters was a highly successful businessman.--From publisher description

A great read on Dick Winters involvement during WW2. If you have read or watched "Band of Brothers", you will appreciate this book.

Winters focuses on a lot of men that were never talked about in the miniseries Band of Brothers. I appreciated his discussion on leadership and what he thought about each and everyone of his men.

Pretty good supplement to the Band of Brothers book. It provides insights into Dick Winters that were not able to be addressed in Ambrose's work. It also provides a slightly different perspective to some of the incidents in that book and new stories involving the men of Easy Company. If you liked Band of Brothers, you'll probably like this.
