Despite the recent controversy surrounding the validity of Stephen Ambrose's works concerning Eisenhower, Band of Brothers is a masterfully written history of Easy Company, 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment and their experiences in World War II. His detailed research into the lives of the men helps the reader to feel as though they truly know those soldiers. It is no wonder that the miniseries was made about this incredible unit. If you are into World War II history or in the military, this is a must read.

I have a B.A. in History, and am now working towards my M.A. in Military History with a concentration in World War II, and I consistently go back to this book for examples of how training was before deployments to Europe, as a basis of comparison in the Battle of the Bulge, and the life and attitude of the average soldier. This is a truly amazing resource.
