Additional Details

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.

Community Reviews

A good companion to "Band of Brothers."

The autobiography of Capt. Richard Winters of Easy Co., 2d Batt. 506th PIR of "Band of Brothers" fame. Well-balanced in the sense that Winters has something good and something bad to say about apparently every officer he served with from the widely-loathed Capt. Soble to his good friends Nixon and Compton and the 506th PIR's CO, Col. Sink, except for the 101st Airborne Division's CO Maxwell Taylor, for whom he could say nothing good.
