This review is from: Band of Brothers (Paperback)
This is the fourth book I've read by Stephen Ambrose. After reading Undaunted Courage, I read Citizen Soldiers followed by D-Day. My only wish would be to have read the latter two books chronologically, i.e., D-Day before Citizen Soldiers. Anyhow, these two books (which I also give 5 stars) give a great account of the preparations leading up to and following the invasion of Normandy, but from a lot of different perspectives. What Band of Brothers manages to do is provide a personal account of one group of men through the entire war, from 1942 to 1945. Ambrose is a outstanding story teller and anyone who has enjoyed his other books would do well to include this one on their reading list too.
