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.

Not a repeat of Ambrose writings

I bought this book for my husband to listen to the following is his review....a review from a
Vietnam combat infantryman's point of view.
Major Winter's writings relates his personal feelings of Easy Co.;his trials as he lead men into loss of life,wounds and civilized life left behind forever.He did not feel he was born to lead but leadership came about on his experiences prior to the war. It is the infantryman who bears the harsh cruelty of war.Winter's gives insight into the infantryman and the men who must make the decisions.Those that have been in war will have moments of reflection,understanding and a quiet nod of the head.Brotherhood of infantryman is better understood,closer than blood family.It is men at their best hoping no one will ever have to do the same.Their duty is ultimatley to each other. Ambrose's writings are not repeated. Winter's gives deeper clarification.Europe was freed and ultimately us. Byron Adams
