We Who Are Alive and Remain: Untold Stories from the Band of Brothers

No reviews
From Marcus Brotherton, co-author of Call of Duty, comes a new collection of untold stories from the Band of Brothers. With candid, personal accounts of training, combat, triumph, and loss, the men of Easy Company let you know what it was really like. The army had decided to try something different. A select division would receive boot camp and paratrooper training in one place and at one time. The result, they hoped, would be a group of men unparalleled in their cohesiveness; a force of heroic spirit and deadly efficiency. After almost two years of hard training, the men of Easy Company parachuted into Normandy on D-Day and, later, Operation Market Garden. They fought their way through Belgium, France, and Germany, survived overwhelming odds, liberated concentration camps, and drank a victory toast in April 1945 at Hitler's hideout in the Alps. Here are stories of war, sacrifice, and courage as seen through the eyes of twenty-three members of one of the most revered combat units in military history. These survivors and family members recount the horrors and the victories, the bonds they made, the tears and blood they shed . . . and the brother they lost. 'I've always thought it was too bad that Ambrose's book and the HBO series selected only a few people to profile .... Easy Company was made up of a hell of a lot more guys than those of us who got all the notoriety. ... This book gives an opportunity for some of those men to share their stories. That's a good thing. These are all top flight men. I was honored to be included in their ranks.' -Lieutenant Lynn 'Buck' Compton, member of Easy Company and author of Call of Duty'. This book adds valuable and fascinating information from men in E Company, 506th PIR, 101st Airborne . . . These are men who volunteered for their duty because they wanted to be the best in the army. They are some of the finest men I know-both then, and today.' -Technical Sergeant Don Malarkey, member of Easy Company and author of Easy Company Soldier'. A more courageous and humble lot I have never met-nor ever will. Their stories of joy, sacrifice, and suffering are America's stories and shall forever be cherished and preserved thanks to this wonderful and timely publication.' -Pete Toye, son of Joe Toye, member of Easy Company
