Easy Company, 506th Airborne Division, U.S. Army, was as good a rifle company as any in the world. From their rigorous training in Georgia in 1942 to D-Day and victory, Ambrose tells the story of this remarkable company, which kept getting the tough assignments. Easy Company was responsible for everything from parachuting into France early D-Day morning to the capture of Hitler's Eagle's Nest at Berchtesgaden. "Band of Brothers" is the account of the men of this remarkable unit who fought, went hungry, froze, and died, a company that took 150 percent casualities and considered the Purple Heart a badge of office. Drawing on hours of interviews with survivors as well as the soldiers' journals and letters, Stephen Ambrose tell the stories -- often in the men's own words -- of these American hereoes.

"Band of Brothers" is overall a very informative book about the experiences of Easy Company throughout World War II. The company is highlighted by the incredible leadership skills of Richard Winters, their commanding officer. Action scenes in the book are accurately described and all equipment names are obviously well-researched. Most of the battle sequences have actual accounts from the veterans which makes for a depiction that feels very real. Additionally, character traits are in-depth and make for an easier connection to real life.

The book band of brothers is a very good book I like it a lot because it has to deal with world war 2 and it tells you someone side of the story like what they have been through and what they had to do as a mission and what they have practiced for ww2 to take back the beach Normandy beach from the Nazis but it’s a really good book I really like it and it’s coming from a person that does not like to read a lot and if you have a chance to pick up Band of brothers take it as I said before I really like this book and it has a lot of details in the book.

I thought it was a good book years ago when I first read it, before the miniseries. I always enjoy books my Stephen Ambrose as his work always have a more personal feel to it. He also covers of the general experience of your average soldier than most authors. If you enjoyed the series, you will love the book.
