    Description

    Easy Company, 506th Airborne Division, U.S. Army, was as good a rifle company as any in the world. From their rigorous training in Georgia in 1942 to D-Day and victory, Ambrose tells the story of this remarkable company, which kept getting the tough assignments. Easy Company was responsible for everything from parachuting into France early D-Day morning to the capture of Hitler's Eagle's Nest at Berchtesgaden.

    Band of Brothers is the account of the men of this remarkable unit who fought, went hungry, froze, and died, a company that took 150 percent casualities and considered the Purple Heart a badge of office. Drawing on hours of interviews with survivors as well as the soldiers' journals and letters, Stephen Ambrose tell the stories - often in the men's own words - of these American hereoes.

    Commentaires

    "A first-class explanation of what crack infantry troops are like....Addicts of military history will relish its finely detailed account.....Stephen Ambrose's thorough research and clear organization have produced a highly readable account of the heroic service of this "band of brothers" he so unstintedly admires." ( San Francisco Chronicle)
    "As a member of just such a unit...I am impressed by how well Mr. Ambrose has captured the true essence of a combat rifle company." (The New York Times Book Review)
    "A valuable and fascinating record....In these pages, the reader can vicariously walk with the men of E Company, suffer and laugh with them." (The Times-Picayune)

    High Expectations Met

    I've read this book several times and enjoyed the HBO series, so my expectations were quite high with this audiobook. Do not be put off by reviews that are dismissive of the narration. Tim Jerome's sober narration is entirely appropriate for this powerful work of nonfiction.

    My deepest respect.

    This was the first book i listened to on Audible.

    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No - I used it as a commuter book.

    You HAVE to pick the Unabridged version

    Well told story of amazing men. Well done narration. Only better book by Ambrose is Pegasus Bridge which I haven't see as an audio book. These are such great men. Read this one first and then there are so many others that have come out since focused on individuals. There is so much great literature on Easy Company. This is the place to start.

    Band of Brothers

    I love Ambrose’s work and this story is great! The problem I have is with the narrator. Tim Jerome pronounces some of the men’s names wrong as well as locations incorrectly. For those that don’t know the difference it isn’t a problem, for me though the mispronunciations are frustrating to hear.

    Greatest Generation

    Any additional comments?

    Like most, I've seen the HBO series "Band of Brothers". I also wanted to go deeper into the story so I purchased the e-book as well as the audible version. I recently finished the book and have a new appreciation for the Greatest Generation. They truly deserve that name by the sacrifices they made to help make this country what it is today. The audio version of this book is excellent and the narrator does a terrific job. I am looking forward to reading more by this author and others on the topic!

    Should Be Required Reading

    This Book should be required reading/listening for all High School American History Classes and also for all entering Military Service.

    God Bless all that have served this Land of the Free!

    A Company of Hero’s

    Band of Brothers is the story of one of the greatest military companies ever to have been formed. It is the story of how ordinary citizen soldiers bonded together to become who we know them as today. These men helped free the world from the Nazi Regime the had taken over much of Europe at the time. However what is more remarkable about this story is that these men faded back into society without asking or demanding a single thing for what they had done.

    Excellent unabridged book, average narration

    I appreciated this audiobook, even after seeing the HBO miniseries and listening to the abridged version of the audiobook. This unabridged version has quite a bit of additional detail that I had not heard (or seen) previously, and I enjoyed hearing the story over again. Tim Jerome's narration is competent though, to my ear, it was not as good as Cotter Smith's reading of the abridged version or as good as George Wilson's reading of Citizen Solders.

    Wie die Serie

    Ein Unterschied ist das es mehr individuelle Geschichten / Seitenstrenge gibt und damit einen detailierten Einblick in die täglichen Probleme und Themen eines Soldaten.

    Authentic, intense and moving war report

    I am deeply moved by this authentic and superbly well-told story of an army company that played a central role in overpowering Nazi Germany in 1944/45. The true story needed no exaggeration and seems to have got none. The individual soldiers are being portrayed very personally, based on multiple long interviews with the survivors and thorough research. So their experiences come to life very vividly in this story.

    A huge compliment goes to the narrator with his nice and clear voice!
