Beyond Band of Brothers: The War Memoirs of Major Dick Winters
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)
