I've read Band of Brothers, and watched the DVD (on numerous occasions). Reading this book continued my interest! It comes across loud and clear that although proud of his achievements during the war, he is very humble, and was just doing what he expected everyone else to be doing.

His views on leadership are very interesting, and anyone who looks after anyone, whether in business, sport or military should read it. Lead from the front and set the standards you expect, both at work, and in your personal time.

He is a quiet, personal and religious man, who has reflected very well on his past.

Good read, totally recommend it!

By Mr. Joe HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on 28 Aug. 2007
Format: Hardcover
You may recall the book by Stephen Ambrose, BAND OF BROTHERS, a unit history of E Company, 2nd Battalion, 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment from its inception in July 1942 to occupation duty in Austria after the Nazi surrender. Much of the story focused on Richard "Dick" Winters, who rose from Easy Company's 2nd Platoon leader to 2nd Battalion commander over the course of the war. Winter's character was played by Damian Lewis in the BAND OF BROTHERS TV miniseries produced by Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg for HBO, arguably the best small screen miniseries ever created.

BEYOND BAND OF BROTHERS (BBB) is the war memoirs of Dick Winters, written with a certain Colonel Cole Kingseed, the nature of whose contribution to the whole goes unexplained in the narrative. But, no matter, really.

BBB essentially follows, and ostensibly embellishes with insider knowledge, the history of Easy Company as outlined in the original book: training at Toccoa, GA and in southern England, the D-Day parachute drop into France, the slog through Holland, the Battle of the Bulge, the discovery of the Buchloe concentration camp, the capture of Berchtesgaden, and the post-surrender occupation duty in Kaprun, Austria.

Even with Kingseed's help, Winters is no Stephen Ambrose. His narrative, aided by a reasonably illustrative photographic section, is business-like and competent but not inspired. A glaring omission is the lack of battlefield maps, which would have been especially helpful for the D-Day, Holland, and Bastogne campaigns. And Winter's makes repeated reference to a mysterious "friend" back in the States, DeEtta Almon, with whom he carries on a sporadic and sometimes awkward correspondence. Is this the "Ethel" he married after returning home? Did I miss something?

I enjoyed this book and if you are a fan of the DVD series, Band of Brothers, or military history in general you will enjoy this book. The author is clearly not a writer but he tells it as it was and speaks from the heart on death, destruction and war. Major Dick Winters is loved by all the members of Easy Company and it's clear from this book why. He was a leader and led from the front. Of particular interest is Winters thoughts on leadership.

is an excellent read, Was glued to it, Couldn't put it down, The word hero is much overused nowadays, This man is a real hero ,, although he now avoids the 'limelight' He is - in my opinion a living legend and deserves a Congretional Medal of honour. There were (of course) other men & women that contributed to the War effort.. A great number losing their lives .. but those that survived need HUGE recognition. This book details just some of the real stories that we wouldn't normally get to know about...

Fantastic stuff.

If you liked the Band Of Brothers TV series and want to know more about the influencial officer Richard "Dick" Winters, then this book will be of great interest to you.

I should say that the book refers to a lot of military references and phrases and if you are unfamiliar with some of the technical aspects of warfare etc, then you might find the book hard going....in that respect you might be better reading Stephen E. Ambrose's "Band Of Brothers" book first.

As a reader you are taken through the life of Winters in the army, from training as an officer and then paratrooper training through his experiences in England, D-Day and through to the end of the war and being part of the army of occupation. Along the way the reader is given a good idea of what was going through Winters' mind in various situations and what it actually took to be a good leader in stressful circumstances, and he talks about his ideas on leadership and how he thought he shaped up to his own high standards.

At times the book becomes a little repetitive and is not always fluent, which is more down to the editing and structure given by the overwriter..and for that this book doesn't get 5 stars; you're left feeling it could have been presented much better. What is very clear once you finish reading this book though, is what a truly amazing man Richard Winters was, and given an insight on how a slightly shy and unassuming ordinary guy could take on the mantle he did with such dignity and authority, in turn earning the respect of every soldier that came into contact with him.

I previously read Ambrose's original book after I had watched the box set for the second time. I visited the Normandy area last year with a group of friends from my church. We visited Brecourt Manor and saw the statue of Major Winters which again re-kindled my interest in the whole B.O.B. story. I stumbled across Major Winters' book whilst surfing for my next read on the Kindle. The book is a fantastic auto biography of the Easy company story. Major winters was a man of his time, a leader of extra-ordinary courage and skill; yet with a humility and God fearing respect that makes his whole personality more appealing and endearing.
