You can tell how damn proud he was to serve with these men, even when he's not flat out telling you. Kingseed By Dick Winters and Cole C.
It is not simply a re-hashing of what's already been said. Upper- and working-class men and boys are thrown together into one trench and struggle to survive. Ground troops landing on Utah beach were relying on Easy Company to secure one of the causeways that were vital if the troops were to get off the beaches and reach the solid ground of Normandy. I think it is clear from interviews Winters did prior to his death, he never saw himself as a hero and he was never out to make this story of the Screaming Eagles and Easy Company about him. I never had to stop and take a nap, when it was on. War brings out the worst and the best in people.
Major Winters was the rarest of men. I thought this was an excellent memoir. He was a true leader put into an impossible situation. The only improvement I would add to this book would be maps and diagrams of some of the more detailed operations, as it's hard to envision maneuvers and positioning of personnel from text alone. He was most definitely a confident and inspiring leader.

Commemorated as the Band of Brothers, Winters and his soldiers suffered 150% casualties while they tried to liberate the European region. I was expecting some transcendental discovery capable of explain why he and his company was so amazing, but this book was so much more!
