This review is from: Currahee!: A Screaming Eagle at Normandy (Mass Market Paperback)
This is a fabulous memoir of one man's WW2 service from his training to his homecoming after the final victory. If you enjoyed reading and watching 'Band of Brothers' then this is a must. It recalls 'A' Company, 1st Bn 506 PIR through their war service. This first book is an action packed account of D-Day and the weeks of fighting which followed. It is an honest, violent account which, although obviously a memoir, reads and flows like a novel. It is NOT a book about how the Americans won the war but a story of international brothers in arms. I could not put it down and went on to read the rest of the books. I'm sure you will too.
