5.0 out of 5 stars The most intensifying war novel since Birdsong, 16 Nov 2003
This review is from: Band of Brothers (Paperback)
After having witnessed the most thrilling, the most outstanding Band of Brothers series on DVD, I immediately rushed out to buy the book to learn more about the characters, and their backgrounds not mentioned in the TV series.
This book is absolutely superb; it grips you right from the paratroooper training at Curahee, where the main characters are introduced. It's not long after this that you see these men of Easy Company fighting together at Utah Beach, one of the D-Day landing beachheads, under the command of Captain Richard (Dick) Winters. The book also contains quotes taken from Ambrose's post-war interview with Winters and Nixon to justify each detail Ambrose puts into the novel. The details and devastation Ambrose describes is brilliant, causing you to actually feel for the men who fought and died at the time.
Ultimately this book will grip you from the full-blown assault at Utah Beach in June 1944, to the terrifying shelling of Bastogne at the Battle of the Bulge, to the victorious capture of Hitler's Eagle's Nest in April 1945, and you will be entranced into a story which will make you feel right next to those American soldiers and share their feelings and emotions as fellow soldiers are eliminated around them. A superb book which is second to none.
