Publisher's Summary

In war, great commanders lead soldiers into hell to do the impossible. They were called Easy Company, but their mission was never easy. Immortalized as the Band of Brothers, they suffered huge casualties while liberating Europe in an unparalleled record of bravery under fire. Dick Winters led them through the Battle of the Bulge, the attack on Foy, where Easy Company reached its breaking point, and finally into Germany, by which time each member had been wounded. Outside Munich, they liberated an S.S. death camp and captured Berchtesgaden, Hitler's alpine retreat.
Beyond Band of Brothers is Winters' memoir, based on his wartime diary, but it also includes his comrades' untold stories. Only Winters was present from the activation of Easy Company until the war's end. This is their story, told in his words for the first time.

I listen to this over and over

You just won't find many books like this in the world. An honest and sincere story from an American hero that has no agenda other than to capture the reality of Easy Company's unbelievable campaign through World War II. This is neither a glorification of war, nor a regretful reflection, but a clear narrative of dignity and purpose. Dick Winters is the most decent man I wish I knew.

Still a good read

Much has been written about Easy Company of the 506 PIR. Although, Dick Winters restates alot of previous information, it was good hearing it in his own words. The best part of the book is after the war in Europe ends. This is all new material.
