TheÂ New York TimesÂ bestselling World War II memoir from Major Dick Winters, the commander of the legendary Band of Brothers, with a new preface from the hero himself.
They were called Easy Company, but their mission was never easy.

Recipient of the Distinguished Service Cross, Dick Winters was their legendary commander. This is his story, told in his own words for the first time, offering readers an astonishing, unvarnished account of his service as a World War II combat leader.
On D-Day, Winters assumed leadership of the Band of Brothers when its original commander was killed, and led them through the Battle of the Bulge and into Germany, by which time each member had been wounded. Based on Winters's wartime diary,Â Beyond Band of BrothersÂ also includes his comrades' untold stories. This is a moving memoir by the man who earned the love and respect of Easy Company, and who is a hero to new generations worldwide.
