This is an excellent story that spawned the HBO miniseries (also excellent). But, LISTEN TO THE UNABRIDGED VERSION. That wasn't available when I downloaded this many moons ago.
I recently re-listened to this and I was confused by the HUGE chunks of the story that were removed from this version. There is no reason whatsoever to go with this version. We're talking about a relatively short book anyway folks.
So, nothing to see here. Just move along to the unabridged audiobook. Off you go now.
Colorful storytelling that makes you never want to push pause.
When "E" company was cut off in the Arden forest in Germany.
Description and storytelling of D-Day.
You'll fall in love in love and empathize with "E" Company
I have not read the print version, but it is better than the Kindle version.
You get to follow some of if not the best soldiers of WWII from training through Normadie and all the way to the Eagle's Nest.
It is hard to find fifteen words to answer with. He read it very well.
Again I must fill the space of fifteen words before giving my two: not really.
One two three four five six seven eight nine ten eleven twelve thirteen. Not really.
I’ve seen the HBO series and was curious about the book, the book was more direct on the battle scenes but was descriptive enough to hold your interest.
Cotter Smith did a great !
I listened while on a long drive in one sitting, captivating.
This is band of brothers..that alone makes it worth listening too. The narrator's voice is right on, it makes it so easy to listen too and "fits" the subject matter. I have had other books where the narrator didnt sound like he was the guy or girl performing the action or that he was there. This leaves the impression that the narrator was there with the soldiers. I really enjoyed this book while driving from Atlanta to Tallahassee FL. Thanks!
This is an excellent story! Stephen Ambrose makes the reader, or listener in this case, feel like they are actually one of these men. You feel all the tragedy, the fog of war, the heartbeat pounding in your ears as you run with Easy company across a field of fire. Amazing men at a terrible time in world history. This would have gotten 5 stars from me, but the narrator lacked a bit of enthusiasm in reading. I listened to this at the gym and found myself unable to turn it off after my workouts! If you've seen the HBO series, then you have to read or hear the book. It really makes the whole experience come to life.
I loved the TV series, and this is another look at the same group of men from the series. A little more detail here and there than the show had. If you liked the show you'll like this. Only thing I didn't like is that it is a little short.
I purchased this audio book after having watched the miniseries many times. I love the story. I love Stephen Ambrose. I love Stephen Ambrose's voice (he narrated D-Day). The narrator of this book does a respectable job, but no one can follow Stephen Ambrose.
I am a retired high school computer teacher. After years of tech reading, I have given up reading for listening while I woodworking.
Spectacular work by a great historian and story teller. Explains and supports the mini-series of the same name. This is a must read for any WWII history buff.
