This past weekend I was away with my family for the weekend. My wife and I both enjoy losing ourselves in bookstores. Thanks to her sharp baby blues, she spotted the book Beyond Band of Brothers which is the war memoirs of Major Dick Winters, leader in Easy Company and one of the main characters in the Ambrose book and the HBO miniseries. The book retells Winters’ story from his war diary, personal recollections and a large amount of material that Stephen Ambrose had collected but left out of his book. The book is fascinating. If you enjoyed the book or mini-series – this is well worth a read.
