After the Band of Brothers went home, they never forgot the lessons of war... After chronicling the personal stories of the Band of Brothers in We Who Are Alive and Remain, author Marcus Brotherton presents a collection of remembrances from the families of the soldiers of Easy Company-and how their wartime experiences shaped their lives off the battlefield. A Company of Heroes is an intimate, revealing portrait of the lives of the men who fought for our freedom during some of the darkest days the world has ever known-men who returned home with a newfound wisdom and honor that they passed onto their families, and that continue to inspire new generations of Americans.

Review: A Company of Heroes: Personal Memories about the Real Band of Brothers and the Legacy They Left Us

User Review  - Phyrman21 - Goodreads

I am not even sure what to say. Another awesome book about some of the lesser known Band of Brothers soldiers. Lesser known only because they were not individually featured in the mini series, but still had stories to tell. Definite heroes. Great book. Read full review
