On the hellish
battlefields of World War II Europe, Major Dick Winters led his Easy
Company—the now-legendary Band of Brothers—from the confusion and chaos of the
D-day invasion to the final capture of Hitler’s Eagle’s Nest.
But Winters’ story
didn’t end there; it was only the beginning.
He was a quiet, reluctant hero whose modesty and strength
drew the admiration of not only his men but millions worldwide. Now comes the
story of Dick Winters in his last years as witnessed and experienced by his
good friend Cole C. Kingseed.
Kingseed shares the formative experiences that made Winters
such an effective leader. He addresses Winters’ experiences and leadership
during the war; his intense, unbreakable devotion to his men; his search for
peace, both without and within, after the war; and how fame forced him to make
adjustments to an international audience of well-wishers and admirers, even as
he attempted to leave a lasting legacy before joining his fallen comrades.
Following Winters’ death on January 2, 2011, the outpouring of grief and
adulation for one of this nation’s preeminent leaders of character, courage,
and competence shows just how great a mark he left on the world.
This is a story of leadership, fame, and friendship and the
journey of one man’s struggle to find the peace that he promised himself if he
survived World War II. Download and start listening now!
