In war, great commanders lead soldiers into hell to do the impossible.

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.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Greg Snyder | 2/15/2014

    " A lot of people have seen the HBO series "Band of Brothers." Major Dick Winters was the leader of the real Band of Brothers. The book is a collection of stories and actions that did not make it into other books about WWII but are just as good. It is a short but excellent read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Ronald Wise | 2/13/2014

    " A recounting of Easy Company's role in Europe during World War II, concluding with an update on the subsequent lives of many of the men from that unit of paratroopers. This book seemed to be written as a supplement to Stephen Ambrose's Band of Brothers, and I probably would have enjoyed it more had I read Ambrose's book first. Winters indicates a lot of reflection on his part in the war, and the quality of leadership. I learned of this memoir from its four-month stay on the New York Times best seller list in 2006. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Connie | 2/12/2014

    " A real life, modern day hero! He recounts his experiences that were also featured in the "Band of Brothers" HBO productions as well as Stephen Ambrose's book. Todays leaders could learn from this man and his style of leadership. This was a gift to my dad but I had to read it first! I was impressed with the man and the book held my interest throughout! "
