Stephen ambrose manages to capture the very essence of the life of a paratrooper in North West Europe in 1944 and 45. The sheer terror of battle, the atrocious living conditions and the daily fear of death are described by the ordinary soldier with the strategic situation being almost an irrelevance .
If you have ever walked past one of those old soldiers on Remembrance Day and wondered " what are all those medals for?" then this book answers that question and makes me fully aware that my generation should be down on its' knees paying homage to all those "Band Of Brothers" who fought for our freedom and not just dismissing them as some relic from the past
