"The story behind Stephen Ambrose's Band of Brothers."—Booklist

They were Easy Company, 101st Army Airborne-the World War II fighting unit legendary for their bravery against nearly insurmountable odds and their loyalty to one another in the face of death. Every soldier in this band of brothers looked to one man for leadership: Major Dick Winters.

This is the riveting story of an ordinary man who became an extraordinary hero. After he enlisted in the army's arduous new Airborne division, Winters's natural combat leadership helped him climb the ranks, but he was never far from his men. Decades later, Stephen E. Ambrose's Band of Brothers made him world-famous. Full of never-before-published photographs, interviews, and Winters's candid insights, Biggest Brother is the story of a man who became a soldier, a leader, and a living testament to the valor of the human spirit.

Excellent....Anyone who has seen Band of Brothers will want to read this. (ARMY Magazine)

A great job...extremely readable. (Topeka Capital-Journal)
