Publisher's Summary

In the summer of 1942, a band of citizen soldiers were brought together by the desire to be better than the other guy. At its peak, Easy Company, 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment, 101st Airborne Division, U.S. Army, was as good a rifle company as any in the world. From their rigorous training in Georgia in 1942 through Utah Beach, Market-Garden, the Bulge, and Hitler's Eagle's Nest, WWII historian Stephen Ambrose tells the story of this remarkable company. In combat, the reward for a job well done is the next tough assignment, and the men of Easy Company kept getting the tough assignments, from parachuting into France early D-Day morning to capturing Hitler's Bavarian outpost.

Band of Brothers

A good, basic treatment. I quickly realized I would have preferred the unabridged version.

Bare bones

This audiobook should stand as an example of why abridged audiobooks should be shunned. This abridgement is a strip job. A great story has been stripped to bare bones and made very hard to follow. People just pop up out of nowhere and you're expected to somehow know who the narrator is talking about.

Still a good listen. Great narrator. A fine companion to the print version and the HBO miniseries. These were some tough people.
