"An incredible trek, and Ambrose brilliantly illuminates every mile of it." (The Tampa Tribune)
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.
This Ambrose account of this outstanding rifle company is a must read for anyone drawn to WW-I accounts. If you like hero's you're gonna love this one.
I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this book. It is a great story of a handful of the heroes of WWII. When it was over, I found myself wishing the story could go on.
I actually had to stop listening to this. The mispronounciations were as fingernails on a chalkboard.
