Duration: 9 hours 57 minutes
In war, great commanders lead soldiers into hell to do the impossible. They were called the Easy Company—but their mission was never easy. Immortalized as the Band of Brothers, they suffered huge casualties while liberating Europe in an unparalleled record of bravery under ﬁre. Dick Winters led them through the Battle of the Bulge, the attack on Foy—where Easy Company reached its breaking point — and ﬁnally into Germany, by which time each member had been wounded. Outside Munich, they liberated an S.S. death camp and captured Berchtesgaden, Hitler's alpine retreat.
Beyond Band of Brothers is Winters's memoir, based on his wartime diary, but it also includes his comrades' untold stories. Only Winters was present from the activation of Easy Company until the war's end. This is their story, told in his words for the ﬁrst time.
