 About the Book 

As good a rifle company as any, Easy Company, 506th Airborne Division, US Army, kept getting tough assignments--responsible for everything from parachuting into France early DDay morning to the capture of Hitlers Eagles Nest at Berchtesgaden. InMoreAs good a rifle company as any, Easy Company, 506th Airborne Division, US Army, kept getting tough assignments--responsible for everything from parachuting into France early DDay morning to the capture of Hitlers Eagles Nest at Berchtesgaden. In Band of Brothers, Ambrose tells of the men in this brave unit who fought, went hungry, froze & died, a company that took 150% casualties & considered the Purple Heart a badge of office. Drawing on hours of interviews with survivors as well as the soldiers journals & letters, Stephen Ambrose recounts the stories, often in the mens own words, of these American heroes.ForewordWe wanted those wings- Camp Toccoa, 7-12/42Stand up & hook up- Benning, Mackall, Bragg, Shanks, 12/42-9/43Duties of the latrine orderly- Aldbourne, 9/43-3/44Look out, Hitler!
