Band of Brothers and Private Ryan, 23. August 1998
This remarkable book about Dick Winters and his men in Easy Company began when Stephen Ambrose, in doing research for his later book D Day, stumbled across Winters' files. Easy Company's narratives were so great, Ambrose stopped to write this book before going on to D Day and Citizen Soldiers--all great books in themselves.
Readers of this book will find many potential sources for the characters and action found in Spielberg's Private Ryan. All who liked the movie should read it.
It was significant and appropriate that Ambrose had Spielberg invite Dick Winters to the west coast premier of the motion picture.
It is also significant that Dick Winters still lectures on leadership at such eminent places as West Point and USMC Headquarters at Quantico, VA.
Without doubt, Band of Brothers will find its honored place in the archives of great war literature beside Red Badge of Courage and Grant's Memoirs.
