Some time ago, on the old board, Major Dick Winters name came up ( I don't remember the context). Winters was the commander of Easy Company, 101 Airborne, of Stephen Ambrose's Band Of Brothers fame. For anyone interested in learning more about this extraordinary man I recommend Larry Alexander's Biggest Brother, The Life Of Major Dick Winters, The Man Who Lead The Band Of Brothers.It was published this past May by NAL Caliber Publishers (a division of Penguin).

Mike,

I also recommend Major Winters's memoirs due out in February 2006 by Penguin.  Title is Beyond Band of Brothers: The Memoirs of Major Dick Winters.  Book is available for pre-order on both Barnes & Noble and Amazon.
