    Dick Winters(Author)
They were called Easy Company-but their mission was never easy. Immortalized as the Band of Brothers, they suffered 150% casualties while liberating Europe-an unparalleled record of bravery under fire. Dick Winters was their commander-"the best combat leader in World War II" to his men. This is his story-told in his own words for the first time.

On D-Day, Dick Winters parachuted into France and assumed leadership of the Band of Brothers when their commander was killed. He led them through the Battle of the Bulge and into Germany, by which time each member had been wounded. They liberated an S.S. death camp from the horrors of the Holocaust and captured Berchtesgaden, Hitler's alpine retreat. After briefly serving during the Korean War, Winters was a highly successful businessman. Made famous by Stephen Ambrose's book Band of Brothers--and the subsequent award-winning HBO miniseries--he is the object of worldwide adulation.

Beyond Band of Brothers is Winters's memoir-based on his wartime diary-but it also includes his comrades' untold stories. Virtually all this material is being released for the first time. Only Winters was present from the activation of Easy Company until the war's end. Winner of the Distinguished Service Cross, only he could pen this moving tribute to the human spirit.

"There is a saying that ''Great leaders are born not made.'' Such a man is Dick Winters... A beautifully written book about a truly great leader. This riveting read clearly reflects Dick Winters''s solid character, great integrity, and unerring judgment in critical battlefield situations." --Lieutenant General Harold G. Moore, co-author of We Were Soldiers Once...And Young"Its modesty, its candor, and its insights into the nature of front-line leadership and the fears and behaviors of men in combat make this memoir a classic ranking with Charles MacDonald''s Company Commander." --Dennis Showalter, author of Patton and Rommel"Dick Winters epitomizes the finest attributes of American citizen-soldiers....a poignant, riveting story with timeless application to the study of leadership in war." --Colonel Lance Betros, Chairman, Department of History, U.S. Military Academy, editor of West Point: Two Centuries and Beyond"Winters''s leadership inspired his soldiers to fight courageously under the most difficult and challenging conditions of battle. [An] extraordinary memoir." --H.R. McMaster, author of Dereliction of Duty: Lyndon Johnson, Robert McNamara, The Joint Chiefs of Staff, and the Lies That Led to Vietnam"There is a saying that 'Great leaders are born not made.' Such a man is Dick Winters... A beautifully written book about a truly great leader. This riveting read clearly reflects Dick Winters's solid character, great integrity, and unerring judgment in critical battlefield situations." --Lieutenant General Harold G.

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.
