If you are looking for more detailed stories of the men of Band of Brothers, you will be disapointed. However, this book is a fabulous account of Major Dick Winters personal experiences of WW2. There are of course stories of ‘his’ men, not in as much detail as I was expecting, some stories of men we never saw in the HBO series, and the full story of some situations that were only touched upon in the HBO series. He writes incredibly well, of his early army days, his experiences with ‘his’ men, the enemy and the processes and strategies of the campaigns he took part in and the war itself; you really get to know Dick as a person, and how he works and thinks. The book covers his early years and right through to the HBO series, and his work after the success of the series. Recommended.

Description

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-"the best combat leader in World War II" to his men. This is his story-told in his own words for the first time.
On D-Day, Dick Winters parachuted into France and assumed leadership of the Band of Brothers when their commander was killed. He led them through the Battle of the Bulge and into Germany, by which time each member had been wounded. 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. Made famous by Stephen Ambrose's book "Band of Brothers"--and the subsequent award-winning HBO miniseries--he is the object of worldwide adulation.

"Beyond Band of Brothers" is Winters's memoir-based on his wartime diary-but it also includes his comrades' untold stories. Virtually all this material is being released for the first time. Only Winters was present from the activation of Easy Company until the war's end. Winner of the Distinguished Service Cross, only he could pen this moving tribute to the human spirit.
