They were called Easy Company, but their mission was never easy. Immortalized as the Band of Brothers, they suffered huge casualties while liberating Europe in an unparalleled record of bravery under fire. Dick Winters led them through the Battle of the Bulge, the attack on Foy, where Easy Company reached its breaking point, and finally into Germany, by which time each member had been wounded. Outside Munich, they liberated an S.S. death camp and captured Berchtesgaden, Hitler's alpine retreat.
Beyond Band of Brothers is Winters' memoir, based on his wartime diary, but it also includes his comrades' untold stories. Only Winters was present from the activation of Easy Company until the war's end. This is their story, told in his words for the first time.

"Winters tells the tales left untold by Stephen Ambrose, whose Band of Brothers was the inspiration for the HBO miniseries." (Publishers Weekly)
all keyed up
Not only does this book describe WWII from Winters standpoint, he also goes into depth on how to be a good leader, soldier and most importantly a good person.
Very well written and read. It's always sad to think that these are the last words to come from such a fine American.
We are blessed to have the memoirs of Major Dick Winters. Both the book and the audible version are extremely well done. It is very enlightening to anyone who doesn't know or remember World War II. This book is better than Steve Ambrose's "Band of Brothers." I highly recommend it to our military and civilians of today.
One of the best , I really enjoyed it!
Easy Company, They where a real "Band of Brothers "
It made me laugh , it made me cry! It made me thank god for all service men and women of that era! So many died so I can live free! Thank-You!!!!Very moving.
This is a must read/listen. The principles of integrity and leadership that can be gleaned from major Winters are invaluable. He and the men of Easy company did astounding feats of bravery throughout the European campaign.
