Oh, the beauty of E Company, reading the end with R. So sad, that E Co just disappeared. But the respect for Winters is just plain inspirational. Beautiful, just beautiful.

Beautiful, beautiful. Read with my sister; made it all the more rich and wonderful. So lovely how Easy remained a band of brothers through life. Poor Sobel, suicide. Glorious that Sisk became a Christian. What people then. The WWII generation had hardships in and before war, so they were stronger in character than today. I'm so glad to experience some of that strength and be inspired. And to see R inspired as well.

Nice to get back, after a long way away. It's all so very interesting - how Webster wasn't even in the German officer scene. How they dealt with the drinking, the points system. All very interesting.

Very fascinating info on Berchtesgaden (264-5), and the looting situation. Also, that every Greman was looking for soneone to surrender to. Nice exposition on the Winters/Welsh silverware scene and the photo album scene.

Interesting how the whole episode 9 was based on the last paragraphs of this chapter. So Easy did find a concentration camp. The film was accurate. And Winters thought, too, that "this is why we're here." Just like the episode.

Nice to finally get back in the groove of this book. I'd held off until I'd seen the associated episode, and it's paying off wonders. Now I know O'Keefe of the previous chapter and the way they made Luz/Perconte from Webster/Reese. But I read the last chap with sis. It was like the show all over again! Winters helping O'Keefe instead of cavorting in Paris. Reasons for love. Very interesting view of the Germans.

Great to see Easy relaxing. And poor Nixon escaping death with three others as one of the few 101st men on Varsity. Also, Spiers gets married! And they anticipate going into Germany. I absolutely love it that I have images for these guys now. I should have watched the show first! Which I'll do for the latter chaps now. Looked back at "Breaking Point" and again have better images.

Fascinating to read of the soldiers' three thrills: arms fire, camaraderie, and destruction (227). And the patrol to get some German prisoners felt so exciting, especially since I could envision Winters and Nixon now. The poor injured Jackson, begging to be killed - and the injured German left for dead by the river. So graphic, so sad. But that is war. And I wish I could tell Webster I remember and feel as he does.

Winter's Dr Zhivago imagery 215, their coldest night 216, but success despite being outnumbered and outsupplied 219 - all because of the intense brotherhood of E Company 221, their unity despite replacements.

Just amazing stories from Bastogne, all so much more clear, now that I can picture the people: Christenson, German horseman & arrogant Kraut 197, Toye & Guanere seriously injured 201 (so heart wrenching), the topsy turvy world of combat 202, Luz blessed skipping friends’ foxholes to get to his 204, Spiers’ story 206, Winter’s run thrilled my heart 209, how Easy didn’t fail despite Lt Dike 210, Shifty Powers’ shot 212

Poor Gordon and his wound. Got to see more of Lipton this stretch. Now I have images for these people. Amazing to read about their cold experiences, how Winters had a few white beans and cold broth for Christmas. And the temptation (which none of Easy took) to self-inflict a shot to the foot to escape. Wow, would I have done that?
