Editorial reviews

Anyone hooked on Stephen Ambrose's HBO series, "Band of Brothers," won't want to miss these stories from the 506th Parachute Infantry. The author interviewed 20 surviving members of Easy Company, and their remembrances of WWII combine in an audio collage of the men's backgrounds, training, transport, combat, homecoming, and lives after the war. George Wilson distinguishes the men with varying accents, tone, and pacing. He melds their individual stories into a blend that flows easily, with each voice and description contributing to an authentic picture of what the war felt like to the men who fought it. For the most part, the men record their memories without emotion, but Wilson conveys the tension, loss, and camaraderie on and off the battlefield.

Publisher's summary

They were the men of the now-legendary Easy Company. After almost two years of hard training, they parachuted into Normandy on D-Day and, later, Operation Market Garden. They fought their way through Belgium, France, and Germany, survived overwhelming odds, liberated concentration camps, and drank a victory toast in April 1945 at Hitler's hideout in the Alps.

Here, revealed for the first time, are stories of war, sacrifice, and courage as experienced by one of the most revered combat units in military history. In We Who Are Alive and Remain, 20 men who were there and are alive today - and the families of three deceased others - recount the horrors and the victories, the bonds they made, the tears and blood they shed, and the brothers they lost.
