If you loved the miniseries you will love the book. Also a great read for military or history buffs, but Ambrose keeps is simple enough for those not familiar with military jargon to keep up.

The older I get, the more I am overwhelmed by the sacrifices faced by my parents generation. These people have been so quiet and anti-modern/PR/immediate-reward focused about what they did for all of us. This books helps me appreciate their strength and selflessness.

This book is phenominal. I read it before learning of the scandal (over plagarism) but found out later that those allegations included book he was getting together near the end of his life. This book follows E company which was part of the 101st airborn. It is taken mostly from first person interviews and it is simply engrossing. You will not want to put it down. Even though we know that ambrose has plagarized he is still very intelligent and talented and this book shows that.

Typical Ambrose book; excellent writing, well researched; personal.

I've read quite a few of his books, and they are all of this high level. When you pick up one of his books, you know it will be good.

War is not a pleasant subject, but it does bring out the best in some men. And nowadays, women, too.

Probably the following quote would make an excellent subtitle; When asked by a young person about his war service in E Company, "Were you a hero? The man replied, "No, I was not; but I served with a lot of them".
