4.0 out of 5 stars more to band of brothers 16 Sep 2006
Format:Hardcover
This is a book solely for those who have read and watched Band of Brothers, and have been left wanting to know more. Ideally, I would have liked more on Winters during his time in Easy Company, but the parts on his early life and what he did after the war help to give a better picture of the man. Biggest Brother also goes into greater detail on the relationship between Winters and Herbert Sobel, something I felt could have been a book in itself. The best thing I can say about this book, all 281 pages, is that I read it in four days. If you are the sort of person who could not put down Band of Brothers, then you will enjoy this look at the man who lead them.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great book, highly recommended 14 April 2006
Format:Hardcover
This is an excellent read and very well researched. For me it ties up a lot of loose ends that I have found other books choose to ignore. Larry Alexander writes extremely well with a typical reporters clarity and vision.

Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must buy !!! 22 July 2006
By K. Chee
Format:Hardcover
This book is a must have for all Band of brothers lovers out there! I thought I knew everything there is to know after reading the Band of Brothers book (twice!), watch the DVD set more than I dare admit and Major Richard Winters memoirs (Beyong Band of Brothers - another must buy too!) but oh no!!....this is good...real good....it has added information that you never thought you need but once you have it you love it and wanted more.

This is one of those rare books that made me laugh out loud and cry buckets too. Great writing, a real gem. Buy it now!!

5.0 out of 5 stars biggest brother 7 Jun 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
When one reads Magor Richard Winters memoirs, his reassuring voice can be felt and heard as a reluctant hero leading a band of heroes. His dedication to be the best, with common sense honest is transmitted to the reader, in a style that make every paratrooper follow him through hell and back. His example is superb,which calls to be reread when one feels down, and need for guidance. A strongly recommended read for every human being, deserves the medal of honor, bless him..

5.0 out of 5 stars A man who could be followeed even into hell! 8 Sep 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Dick Winters, sadly no longer with us, has explained some of his motives for his actions during the war and after it. It was a good read and I enjoyed it. We are the poorer for not having him with us.
