"Second Platoon was indeed 'blessed' to have Buck Compton as our leader. He was a quiet and strong officer who, above all, listened and talked to all men under his command. I could never say enough to express my thanks and admiration for Buck Compton."
-William "Wild Bill" Guarnere
A member of the elite 101st Airborne paratroopers recounts his life, from his sports career at UCLA, to his experiences during World War II, to his post-war legal career as a prosecutor and his role in helping to convict Sirhan Sirhan for the murder of Robert Kennedy. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Audio CD.Alle Produktbeschreibungen

Alles in allen sehr empfehlenswert, wenn man den typischen amerikanischen Patriotismus hier und da überlesen kann.

I have read most of the books written by or about members of Easy Company. I do the same thing every time; that is, to approach it with the idea that the material will expand the information in the Ambrose book, and bring even more details of the fighting. That's not exactly the case here.
Reflections on Band of Brothers deal mostly with Mr. Compton trying to correct inaccuracies in the mini-series or clarifying events that are depicted that didn't actually happen. I found some of the effort to correct the mini-series sort of squashed my fun as I had accepted the HBO series as accurate. I'm fine to now know that some of the events are made up, but it doesn't in any way make me appreciate the series any less. Rather, it adds clarity and helps explain the truth behind some of what we see on the screen.
Really, the real joy of the book had little to do with Band of Brothers. I was fascinated to read of Mr. Compton's early career as an actor. I was inspired by the way he worked to get on with his life after the tragic death of his father. Some of the most interesting reading was the coverage of life after the war. The people he came into contact with and the events he was involved in were just terrific reading.
My favorite part of the book was the rant portion at the end. It was nice to read what someone as experienced with life as Buck Compton thinks about the state of our nation. I'd like to make that section required reading for all high school students. I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in modern culture or contemporary political science.
If you're looking only for another re-telling of Band of Brothers, this is not your book. If, on the other hand you want to read about the life of a true hero, one of the Band of Brothers, this book is a must for you.
