    Major Dick Winters was born near Lancaster, Pennsylvania in 1918. A graduate of Franklin & Marshall College in 1941, he was one of the initial officers assigned to Easy Company of the 101st Airborne. Winters jumped into France on D-Day and commanded the unit now known as the Band of Brothers. Promoted to Captain and then battalion commander, he led his men through the Battle of the Bulge and captured Berchtesgaden, Hitler's Bavarian retreat. Released from military service in November 1945, he returned briefly to active duty during the Korean War, then spent his life on a small Pennsylvania farm and was a highly successful businessman. Now eighty-six years old, Winters is popular on the lecture circuit and has found the peace and quiet he promised himself as he lay down to catch some sleep on June 6, 1944—D-Day.
    Cole C. Kingseed is a thirty-year Army veteran who served in a variety of command and staff positions. He earned his M.A. in national security and strategic studies from the U.S. Naval War College and his Ph.D. in history from Ohio State.

Kingseed is the author of thirty-seven articles on corporate and military leadership and such books asEisenhower and the Suez Crisis of 1956 and Old Glory Stories: Combat Leadership in World War II. He is president of his own leadership consulting firm, The Brecourt Leadership Experience, Inc., whose clients, to name a few, include General Electric, FreddieMac, International Paper, and Bayer Corporation.

    • Great first person account of life in Easy Company
      Verified Purchase

      Great book! I really enjoyed reading Major Winters' 1st person account of what really happened to Easy Company in WWII. I have read Band of Brothers and watched the TV series many times. This book is a great compliment to Band of Brothers because you learn many more details behind the men and the stories captured in the TV series. Dick Winters was one of the best company/battalion commanders in the history of the U.S. Army. Every time I read his words or hear him speak I can't help but feel extreme gratitude for having men like him willing to sacrifice so much for his friends and his country.
