The compelling WWII correspondence and artifacts of Major Dick Winters, commander of the Band of Brothers.
Interwoven with previously unpublished diary entries, military reports, postwar reminiscences, private photos, personal artifacts, and rich historical context, Winters’s letters offer compelling insights on the individual costs and motivations of World War II service members.
Winters’s heartfelt prose reveals his mindset of the moment. From stateside training to the hedgerows of Normandy, his correspondence immerses readers in the dramatic experiences of the 1940s. Via the lost art of letter writing, the immediacy and honesty of Winters’s observations takes us beyond the traditional accounts of the fabled 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment’s Easy Company.

Ok it’s way too hot today (in Sydney Australia) that I fainted at the bus stop; lucky mum was there and she had to try and get me to Dr; but I’m gonna need new glasses for Christmas being as my favourite last pair got busted when I fainted
Feeling rather embarrassed sore and sorry for myself
Be careful out in the Australian heatwave sun all please so you don’t end up fainting from the heat today
