A compelling history of the Easy Company of the US Airborne--the personalities of the men really shine through the story, and the war mindset becomes more comprehensible to civilians. I'm watching the HBO miniseries based on this book, and it's also excellent.

My biggest issue with this book is its clunky writing and lousy editing. I can safely say that aside from self-published books, I've never seen a book with more typos and clumsy phrasing. Ambrose may be good at research, but his writing and editing need work.
