Description

“Tells the tales left untold by Stephen Ambrose, whose Band of Brothers was the inspiration for the HBO miniseries...laced with Winters’s soldierly exaltations of pride in his comrades’ bravery.”—Publishers Weekly
 
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. Winner of the Distinguished Service Cross, Dick Winters was their legendary commander. This is his story—told in his own words for the first time.
 
On D-Day, Winters assumed leadership of the Band of Brothers when its commander was killed and led them through the Battle of the Bulge and into Germany—by which time each member had been wounded. Based on Winters’s wartime diary, Beyond Band of Brothers also includes his comrades’ untold stories. Virtually none of this material appeared in Stephen Ambrose’s Band of Brothers. Neither a protest against nor a glamorization of war, this is a moving memoir by the man who earned the love and respect of the men of Easy Company—and who is a hero to new generations worldwide.

    Thank you to ALL, the Band of Brothers I wish I had been born in 1922, rather then 1952 to have possibly had the opportunity to have been one of your Band of Brothers. Sgt Pameticky US Army 1971-1978, son of SSgt Francis Neil Pameticky US Army 1928-1955, 30 ID, 120th

    A must read for any Band of Brothers fan. It's interesting to read about these events from a more personal perspective and hear stories that weren't told in Ambrose' book. I can say the same thing about Malarkey's book.
  • Great study of ordinary people who did great things.

    I wish all of my history classes could read and my sports teams could understand the amount of practice and dedication went into being "THE BEST".

    I have both read the book and seen the mini series on hbo. Until I read the book it hadn't really sunk in just how much the men of easy company suffered but always got it done....would be an honor just to shake your hand Mr. Winters.
  • Amazing

    I am a great fan of the series band of brothers, however to read words written by such a hero is inspiring. The humble way it is told is something most people could not do today, in this world where everyone is looking for fame for things that don't really matter. I know that it is not just easy company that won the war, but the stories of the men that worked together, and held on to a friendship through unbearable experiences helps the regular person relate to such heroes. I am a Canadian, and I live in the USA, but I thank both sides for their part in creating a place where we have choice and liberty, and we must live a full life for those who gave it all for us. I loved the book and the personal in sites offered, my only complaint is that in the ebook there were no photos.
  • Great book by a great American hero

    The telling of his story outside the hype of the movie and book about Easy Company really make one appreciate the sacrifices of his generation. For anyone who liked Band Of Brothers will love this one

    All true men of courage should be molded after Major Dick Winters. Wish I had had the opportunity to me him. Rest easy Sir.

    A Great companion to Band of Brothers. Gives more personal insight to what Ambrose so wonderfully depicted in Band of Brothers. It is also a fantastic insight into the mentality of what a great leader is.
