    Dick Winters(Author) Cole C Kingseed(Author)
On D-Day, Dick Winters took off with 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment and prepared to parachute into German-held north France. 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. The plane carrying many of the commanding officers was shot down, leaving Dick Winters suddenly in command of his company. But during the drop he, and many of his men, had been separated from his equipment and was unarmed except for a trench knife.

In this remarkable World War 2 memoir, Dick Winters tells the tales left untold by Stephen Ambrose in his 1992 epic Band of Brothers. Starting with an account of the gruelling training designed to make the 506th the most elite unit in the US Army, Beyond Band of Brothers is fascinating account of one man's experience of commanding Easy Company from D-Day, to the Battle of the Bulge and into Germany. Dick Winters gives real insight into leadership under the most difficult conditions - every man in the company had been injured by the time they reached Germany - and tells the real story of the Allies' final defeat of Hitler, from the point of view of someone who was really there.

"Praised as an exemplar of leadership, [Winters] shows here what he did to earn that praise, and how he did it" (Booklist)"[An] extraordinary memoir" (H. R. McMaster, author of Dereliction of Duty)

Review Text

  • By Margaret Matthews on 4 September 2017

    I loved the mini series and thought what a wonderful man Major Dick Winters was. Truly inspirational. His thought for and care of his men is obvious. I still feel the same way. The book is easy to read though some of the detail on regimental staffing and construction was more than I needed. Major Winters is gracious in his comments about the part played by Captain Sobel- I'm sure that I couldn't have been.On the whole an enjoyable and enlightening read. The respect he had for his men was returned to him by those men and was thoroughly deserved.

    I bought this for my husband and he thinks it deserves 5 stars. He really enjoyed the book, being a huge fan of the Band Of Brothers Series and having a keen interest in the war. A recommended read from him.

    Anyone who is interested in the Band of Brothers should read this book. An absorbing read. I didn't want it to end. I am constantly amazed by the heroism of Easy Company.

  • By Cricketer on 9 December 2012

    Having seen Band of Brothers it was good to read about things in the authors own words. The affection and esteem with which he still views his comrades is remarkable.
