Have you seen the HBO mini-series “Band of Brothers”? I have, and watch it repeatedly, every chance I get. I am fascinated by this story of World War II soldiers… and therefore read the book upon which the miniseries is based.
I have never read book like this; military history had never really been my thing. So some of it was a little over my head, and I needed to pay close attention to descriptions of troop movements and such. But, this is an incredible story. There are some slight differences between the book and the miniseries, of course… and more information and anecdotes in the book. I am really glad I finally read this book.
