great insight

This book gives a great insight to the man and his philosophy of life, This is the story of a rather unremarkable young man who grew to become one of the most beloved leaders of the second world war. Very interesting read,

In the Band of Brothers book by Stephen Ambrose and in the TV series produced from it, all reports of Dick Winters certify him as a true hero; not just a flashy show-off, but an exemplar of those who won that war. Happily, he kept notes on what he experienced and was capable of writing of those experiences in readable, often gripping prose.

Be prepaired to cry again

I have the DVD package of the HBO series so this book fills in the gaps and adds a little extra insight. These guys are my heroes. No doubt about it.
