Band of Brothers: E Company, 506th Regiment, 101st Airborne from Normandy to Hitlers Eagles Nest by Stephen E. AmbroseAs good a rifle company as any, Easy Company, 506th Airborne Division, US Army, kept getting tough assignments--responsible for everything from parachuting into France early DDay morning to the capture of Hitlers Eagles Nest at Berchtesgaden. In Band of Brothers, Ambrose tells of the men in this brave unit who fought, went hungry, froze & died, a company that took 150% casualties & considered the Purple Heart a badge of office. Drawing on hours of interviews with survivors as well as the soldiers journals & letters, Stephen Ambrose recounts the stories, often in the mens own words, of these American heroes.

Fact and fiction frequently collide when it comes to World War II. It boosted the careers of actors like Homeland star Damian Lewis, made household names of Dick Winters and Lewis Nixon, and brought to vivid life the experiences of World War II combat, liberating a concentration camp and parachuting behind enemy lines on D-Day. Band of Brothers paid close attention to historical accuracy, but … failed to explore the long-term consequences of their war. But how well do we really know the men of Easy Company? And the hard truth is that not all of them had a Hollywood ending.
