The Title Says It All,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Brothers In Battle, Best of Friends (Hardcover)
As a WWII buff, I watched the HBO series Band of Brothers, and eventually bought the DVD version, and I also read the Stephen Ambrose book prior to watching the series. These are good introduction to this book.
This book gives Bill and Babe's first hand account of what they went through during the war, and how the hardships of battle bonded them together even to this day.
The Ambrose book and HBO miniseries while excellent, they pale in comparison with the story being told in the first person, by men who were actually there.
These are two ordinary guys from South Philadelphia,who never knew each other prior to the war, but because of it are best of friends.
If you want to read an excellent first hand account of two real Band of Brothers, pick up this book. You'll laugh and cry, but most of all you will see how the horrors of war can bond people together.
