Summary:

From Stephen E. Ambrose, bestselling author of Band of Brothers and D-Day, the inspiring story of the ordinary men of the U.S. army in northwest Europe from the day after D-Day until the end of the bitterest days of World War II.

In this riveting account, historian Stephen E. Ambrose continues where he left off in his #1 bestseller D-Day. Citizen Soldiers opens at 0001 hours, June 7, 1944, on the Normandy beaches, and ends at 0245 hours, May 7, 1945, with the allied victory. It is biography of the US Army in the European Theater of Operations, and Ambrose again follows the individual characters of this noble, brutal, and tragic war. From the high command down to the ordinary soldier, Ambrose draws on hundreds of interviews to re-create the war experience with startling clarity and immediacy. From the hedgerows of Normandy to the overrunning of Germany, Ambrose tells the real story of World War II from the perspective of the men and women who fought it.

    Very enjoyable and enlightening. Great history lesson as to the sacrifices made during WW II.

  • Daniel Wainwright

    Another epic story told by the soldiers who fought in Europe after Normandy. This book is more of a history book with somewhat less in the way of personal stories. The book is unable to focus on a small group of soldiers, which makes it a little less personal than some of his other works. Ambrose is much more critical of the military intelligence, which at times is a distraction to what the people on the front were doing to win the war.

  • Ricardo Fagundes

    For me this audio book was a very powerful listen. The way that the lives of the men played into the historic events made it all seem so more real instead of something you learn about at school or that Grandpa talks about.
