About the Author

Stephen E. Ambrose (1936-2002) was director emeritus of the Eisenhower Center, Boyd Professor of History at the University of New Orleans, and president of the National D-Day Museum. He was the author of many books, including The Mississippi and the Making of a Nation: From the Louisiana Purchase to Today. His compilation of 1,400 oral histories from American veterans and authorship of over twenty books established him as one of the foremost historians of the Second World War in Europe.

Reviews

"This is more than military history the way it should be written: it is military history the way it can be written.Band of Brothers is an absorbing, compelling, and even stunning book. . . . This may be as close as any reader will wish to come to war without actually taking part in it."--Richmond Times-Dispatch
"A first-class explanation of what crack infantry troops are like . . . a highly readable account of the heroic service of this 'band of brothers' he so unstintingly admires."--San Francisco Chronicle
"A valuable and fascinating record . . . In these pages, the reader can vicariously walk with the men of E Company, suffer and laugh with them."--The Times-Picayune
"As a member of just such a unit . . . I am impressed by how well Mr. Ambrose has captured the true essence of a combat rifle company."--The New York Times Book Review
