Beyond Band of Brothers: The War Memoirs of Major Dick Winters


Berkley Publishing Group Feb 06

Beyond Band of Brothers is based on Major Winter’s combat diary, letters, and materials originally gathered by Steve Ambrose for his book “Band of Brothers”, but never used. It takes the reader from the formation of Easy Company to the end of the war, and follows Dick Winter’s post-war life. The book is a valuable source document because the reader is getting a glimpse of what it was like for the common soldier through his eyes - in fact it feels like you are fighting right along side the brave men of Easy Company.

Major Dick Winters has created a well-written honorific to the men he served with, as well as a vehicle for their take on the war. Beyond Band of Brothers insures the voices of Easy Company never fall silent. This book is a “must read” for any historian or World War II enthusiast.

I'll be sure to tell my hubby about it, he's a world war history buff. I just like all history myself. But he loves to read about all the world war stuff.

Why did they call themselves "Easy Company"? Was it related to sexual practices, or the difficulty level on which they preferred to play video games?

They were acutally "E" company and I guess they figured it sounded pretty funny to refer to themselves as "Easy" Company. It was anything but easy for them as they were completely surrounded during the "Battle of the Bulge". When warned about the potential German encirclement by withdrawing troops Winters said "We're supposed to be surrounded, we're paratroopers".
