"Tells the tales left untold by Stephen Ambrose, whose Band of Brothers was the inspiration for the HBO miniseries....laced with Winters's soldierly exaltations of pride in his comrades' bravery."-- Publishers Weekly

They were called Easy Company--but their mission was never easy. Immortalized as the Band of Brothers, they suffered 150% casualties while liberating Europe--an unparalleled record of bravery under fire. Winner of the Distinguished Service Cross, Dick Winters was their legendary commander. This is his story--told in his own words for the first time.

On D-Day, Winters assumed leadership of the Band of Brothers when its commander was killed and led them through the Battle of the Bulge and into Germany--by which time each member had been wounded. Based on Winters's wartime diary, Beyond Band of Brothers also includes his comrades' untold stories. Virtually none of this material appeared in Stephen Ambrose's Band of Brothers . Neither a protest against nor a glamorization of war, this is a moving memoir by the man who earned the love and respect of the men of Easy Company--and who is a hero to new generations worldwide.

A great read on Dick Winters involvement during WW2. If you have read or watched "Band of Brothers", you will appreciate this book.

Winters focuses on a lot of men that were never talked about in the miniseries Band of Brothers. I appreciated his discussion on leadership and what he thought about each and everyone of his men.

Pretty good supplement to the Band of Brothers book. It provides insights into Dick Winters that were not able to be addressed in Ambrose's work. It also provides a slightly different perspective to some of the incidents in that book and new stories involving the men of Easy Company. If you liked Band of Brothers, you'll probably like this.
