Pressestimmen

"Presents the ordeal of war for the horror it truly is, yet it also shows how the indomitable spirit of ordinary citizens can prevail and triumph in the face of incredible odds."
-Robyn Post Co-author of the New York Times bestseller Brothers in Battle, Best of Friends

"I've always thought it was too bad that Ambrose's book and the HBO series selected only a few people to profile .... Easy Company was made up of a hell of a lot more guys than those of us who got all the notoriety. ... This book gives an opportunity for some of those men to share their stories. That's a good thing. These are all top flight men. I was honored to be included in their ranks."
-Lt. Lynn "Buck" Compton Member of Easy Company and author of Call of Duty

"This book adds valuable and fascinating information from men in E Company, 506th PIR, 101st Airborne .... These are men who volunteered for their duty because they wanted to be the best in the army. They are some of the finest men I know-both then, and today."
-Tech. Sgt. Don Malarkey Member of Easy Company and author of Easy Company Soldier

My father, Joe Toye, knew well and served alongside many of the contributors of this book and shared many of the experiences they have so succinctly described. A distinct honor in my life was to have had the privilege of personally meeting many of these great men of Easy Company and having the opportunity to listen to their stories firsthand. A more courageous and humble lot I have never met-nor ever will. Their stories of joy, sacrifice, and suffering are America's stories and shall forever be cherished and preserved thanks to this wonderful and timely publication.
-Pete Toye, son of Joe Toye (1919-1995), Easy Company member

"Imagine being able to sit down and listen to twenty veterans of one of the most fabled American military units of World War II tell their personal war stories--stories full of pain and fear and camaraderie and pride that most of them, like a lot of veterans, probably never even told their families. That priceless opportunity is here in Marcus Brotherton's fascinating collection of oral histories by a remarkable group of American heroes. Be amazed, be humbled.
-Flint Whitlock Pulitzer-nominated author and military historian Author of The Fighting First: The Untold Story of the Big Red One on D- Day

Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Stephen Ambroses Buch "Band of Brothers", sowie die darauf basierende HBO Mini-Fernsehserie Band of Brothers - Wir waren wie Brüder: Die komplette Serie (6 DVDs) führten zu einem neu erwachten Interesse an dieser Truppe, den Männern der E(asy)-Kompanie des 506ten Regiments der 101sten Airborne Division der US-Streitkräfte im zweiten Weltkrieg. Als eine der ersten Spezialeinheiten spielten die Fallschirmjäger eine entscheidende Rolle bei der erfolgreichen Invasion der Alliierten in die Normandie, bei den winterlichen Gräbenkämpfen um Bastogne, dem Einmarsch in Deutschland und schließlich der feierlichen Eroberung Berchtesgadens zum Kriegsende.

In Ambroses Buch wird die Geschichte der Kompanie von der zweijährigen Ausbildung bis zur Siegesfeier in Berchtesgaden nacherzählt. Während der Ausbildung und den folgenden fünf Einsätzen, an denen die Kompanie im Krieg teilnahm (Normandie, Holland, Bastogne, Hagenau, Deutschland) setzt Ambrose den Fokus seiner Erzählung auf einzelne Mitglieder der Truppe, während die anderen zwar auch immer wieder erwähnt werden, jedoch im Hintergrund bleiben. Einige der Hauptpersonen aus Ambroses Buch veröffentlichten seither zusätzlich ihre persönlichen Kriegsmemoiren, darunter zum Beispiel Lynn "Buck" Compton, der seine Erinnerungen ebenfalls mit Hilfe von Marcus Brotherton, dem Autor des vorliegenden Buches verfasste.

Excellent book of veterans' accounts 13. Mai 2009
Von Paul Woodadge - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Band of Brothers has spawned a mini-industry of art prints, books and magazines and this book is the latest Easy Company work to hit the market. So if you have all these other books, is this new one worth buying? Well my answer to that is a big resounding YES.

As great as the TV series was and the original Ambrose book too, you always felt that for every featured character, there were others who's ommission meant we missed hearing their tales. Well here Marcus Brotherton offers us the stories, memories and anecdotes of 20 more Easy company veterans. Some were included in the TV series - Shifty Powers, Earl McClung and Herb Suerth Jnr, but many weren't and most readers will find the memories of Al Mampre, Dewit Lowrey, Hank Zimmerman and Norman Neitzke (for example) new and fascinating.

Marcus allows the vets to the talk about their lives from childhood to old age in their own words and style. But ordered into chapters covering from before the war into enlisting, training and combat in Normandy through to Austria and also their post-war years. This is not a battlefield study, it won't tell you which battalion was located at what point in any given campaign. It's all about the men and how they viewed the events that shaped the 20th Century. It tells of their fears and hopes, their pride and determination and the horrors and joys of serving in the European campaign in WWII - all in their own words and in easy to read short anecdotes some of which are also very funny.

But the best part of the book is the appendix, where the children of 3 Easy company veterans write passionately about their fathers. Michael Sobel writes about his father's negative portrayal in the TV show, George Jnr and Lana tell us about the Company's resident comic their father - George Luz. And Susan shares intimate memories of life with her father Burr Smith who after WWII continued to serve his country in further conflicts. These recollections alone are reason enough to buy this book, and I for one will treasure the book for years to come.

Their stories are a gift to "us who remain" engaged in life's battles 22. Mai 2009
Von A Band of Brothers Admirer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
First the Nation called on these men to give in the fight against the nazis. They endured their training, their burdens and hardships and the hell of war with humility and without complaint. They were all changed by the experience and some gave their lives. When the war ended and the unit dissolved they got on with their lives, found careers and started families. They kept the memory of what they did among themselves and preserved their wartime friendships through reunions, visits, and correspondence. A few of the men published accounts of their experiences; David Webster and Don Burgett among them. The writer, historian Stephen Ambrose told their story in the book "Band of Brothers." That story became the basis for the HBO miniseries, "Band of Brothers" which was produced by Tom Hanks. The film's appeal brought a renewed interest and public desire to know more. The men continued to publish their stories; among them are Dick Winters (Kingseed and Alexander), Bill Guarnere and Babe Heffron(Post), Jake McNiece (Killblane), Buck Compton (Brotherton), and Don Malarkey (Welch). And now through the efforts of Marcus Brotherton the stories of many more of these men are revealed to us. The book organizes their stories in chronological phases. The style creates an intimate experience for the reader to be able to nearly hear the men's spoken accounts in a very personal way. Thank you, Mr. Brotherton and thank you to the men who gave so much to the country and continue to inspire us and give "us who remain" the chance to hear their personal remembrances of war and life stories! Currahee!

After The Cameras Leave, There Are... 2. August 2009

Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
We Who Are Alive and Remain: Untold Stories from the Band of Brothers (Hardcover)

(I would like to dedicate this review to the memory of Shifty Powers, who died in June,2009 of cancer.)

There have been many books written about the 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment, 2nd Battalion, Easy Company. Easy is the subject of an HBO miniseries, and is known the celebrated "Band of Brothers." The men, in their 80s, are now stars, and they are asked for stories, autographs, and memorabilia. There have been so many hounded for their individual stories--so many personal, buried stories--that they have become a part of the man, that is, until NOW.

"We Who Are Alive and Remain: Untold Stories from the Band of Brothers," by noted American historian Marcus Brotherton tells these stories, and in the best way possible--by using personal narrative from each man. It is very hard to find war books that feel like you're sitting in your den and swapping stories with your buddy over a beer. It is what you find after Hollywood packs up its cameras and goes home, leaving you with the "I wonder what happened to...?" This book mops up some of the things "Band of Brothers" leaves behind. This shares the men's stories from Normandy, Market-Garden, the Battle of the Bulge, the Rhine, and the Peacetime Force in Germany and Austria.

Because this is basically written BY the men of Easy Company, and edited by Marcus Brotherton, I give this book a five-star, thumbs way-up, rating.

Read it and weep. Seriously.

Firsthand Accounts from Band of Brothers 6. August 2009
Von David Pruette - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
We Who are Alive and Remain is the excellent latest effort in a kind of cottage industry of Band of Brothers books spawned by Stephen Ambrose's book and the HBO series. I have come to Band of Brothers fairly recently, and I admit to being absorbed in the books and the DVD set. Plus, we visited the D-Day sites in Normandy in late May, so all of this is more meaningful to me now.

Mr. Brotherton's book is billed as the "Untold Stories from the Band of Brothers" and that description is entirely accurate. Mr. Ambrose focused on Easy Company as a whole as did the DVD, but since then several books have been published about individual members of Easy. In this book, Mr. Brotherton gives us stories of war and post-war from 23 members of Easy Company that we have not read individual books about previously. The stories are direct quotes from the soldiers and are organized by chronological chapters. The book also has a very good section at the end called Memories of My Father written by children of three of the deceased members of Easy Company, I found the one written by Captain Sobel's son to be particularly interesting. Several other useful appendices round out the book.

If you are interested in Band of Brothers and the exploits of the men of Easy Company, you will very much enjoy the firsthand accounts in We Who are Alive and Remain.

A personal history of war 19. Mai 2009
Von Michael W. Albin - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
This book is a great read! Especially for men. I highly recommend it for a Father's Day gift cause for "the man whose got everything" doesn't have these real, vivid, pictures of courage and sacrifice.

These are the stories of 20 of the surviving men from E Co, 506th PIR, 101st Airborne, the original Band of Brothers. It's a companion piece to Ambrose's book, and if you've read the original or seen the DVDs on HBO, be sure to get this. But it also works as a stand-alone book, even if you're brand new to the subject.

I've got a son who's a sheriff's deputy, and he and I are both long-time fans of the Band of Brothers, and of well-told military non-fiction like this. These are stories of bravery, grit, determination, courage, brotherhood, and loyalty, and anyone who's in this line of work or knows somebody who is can relate to this.
