History. Military. Nonfiction. HTML:Stephen E. Ambrose's classic New York Times bestseller and inspiration for the acclaimed HBO series about Easy Company, the ordinary men who became the World War II's most extraordinary soldiers at the frontlines of the war's most critical moments. Featuring a foreword from Tom Hanks.
They came together, citizen soldiers, in the summer of 1942, drawn to Airborne by the $50 monthly bonus and a desire to be better than the other guy. And at its peak??in Holland and the Ardennes??Easy Company was as good a rifle company as any in the world.
From the rigorous training in Georgia in 1942 to the disbanding in 1945, Stephen E. Ambrose tells the story of this remarkable company. In combat, the reward for a job well done is the next tough assignment, and as they advanced through Europe, the men of Easy kept getting the tough assignments.
They parachuted into France early D-Day morning and knocked out a battery of four 105 mm cannon looking down Utah Beach; they parachuted into Holland during the Arnhem campaign; they were the Battered Bastards of the Bastion of Bastogne, brought in to hold the line, although surrounded, in the Battle of the Bulge; and then they spearheaded the counteroffensive. Finally, they captured Hitler's Bavarian outpost, his Eagle's Nest at Berchtesgaden.
They were rough-and-ready guys, battered by the Depression, mistrustful and suspicious. They drank too much French wine, looted too many German cameras and watches, and fought too often with other GIs. But in training and combat they learned selflessness and found the closest brotherhood they ever knew. They discovered that in war, men who loved life would give their lives for them.
This is the story of the men who fought, of the martinet they hated who trained them well, and of the captain they loved who led them. E Company was a company of men who went hungry, froze, and died for each other, a company that took 150 percent casualties, a company where the Purple Heart was not a medal??it was a badge o

The Story of Easy company and the airborne as a whole during WW2 is inspiring and reminds us to be thankful. We stand on the shoulders of giants and the story of these men proves it. ( )

Another excellent historical recap provided by Stephen Ambrose.

I’ve seen the series Band of Brothers in its entirety more times than I can count. Despite the incredible detailed history of Easy Company that the video series provides, I was still drawn to read the book on which it is based. The book provides much more detailed descriptions of human emotions that are very difficult to display in a video series. The book details many things that went through the minds of the Easy Company members, establishing a further detailed sense of how their WWII service affected them. I doubt there will ever be another history of a group of soldiers such as this.

We’ve all likely heard of PTSD. This book helps one understand what the ravages of war will do to human beings. As Ambrose aptly puts it, in combat, there is no one that is not affected by it, no matter how strong or brave they are. They carry the wounds with them forever, whether physical or mental or both.

This book remains a treasure despite the number of years since it was published (1991). Obviously, the final chapter, which details what happened to the men after the war and where they were in life in 1991 is outdated – however, the video series did do some updating to that information at the end.

I now find myself desiring to again view the video series to better understand the different characters and their personalities which the book so greatly makes richer. ( )

A great look behind the scenes of a company of heroes during World War II. Short and concise. Ambrose collected both oral and written histories of these men, and gave them this book as their voice. ( )
  buffalogr | Aug 14, 2023 |
Excellent book. Lots of it is very very disturbing. Death, miscalculations, bad decisions. But lots of good decisions and stunningly brave actions. A good presentation of what becoming a band of close people can do to ability and willingness to risk one's life. ( )

The book rests upon interviews Ambrose conducted with former members of E Company, 2nd Battalion, 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment of the 101st Airborne Division. The veterans were having a reunion at a hotel in New Orleans, Louisiana; the interviews were conducted as part of a project to collect oral histories of D-Day for the National D-Day Museum in New Orleans.[1]: 317  Ambrose was intrigued with the bonds that had developed among the members of Easy Company. He circulated his drafts among the surviving members of the company, asked for input, and incorporated their ideas into later drafts. Ambrose wrote of the finished product, "We have come as close to the true story of Easy Company as possible."[2]

This is for the book by Stephen E. Ambrose. It is not the 2001 miniseries by Spielberg. The "Original Publication Date" is 1992, not 2001 as some users are incorrectly setting.
