The story of two inseparable friends and soldiers portrayed in the HBO miniseries Band of Brothers. William "Wild Bill" Guarnere and Edward "Babe" Heffron were among the first paratroopers of the U.S. Army--members of an elite unit of the 101st Airborne Division called Easy Company. Arguably the bravest, most efficient, physically fit, and tight-knit group of soldiers the Army has ever produced, the unit was called upon for every high-risk operation of the war, including D-Day, Operation Market Garden in Holland, the Battle of the Bulge, and the capture of Hitler's Eagle's Nest in Berchtesgaden. They fought side by side, until Guarnere lost his leg in the Battle of the Bulge. The two reconnected at the war's end and have been the best of friends ever since. Their story is a tribute to the lasting bond forged between comrades in arms.--From publisher description.… (més)

Well I finished a another book related to the Band of Brothers—members of the 506 Parachute Infantry Regiment of the 101st Airborne Division. The story is about two paratroopers who originated from Philadelphia: "Wild Bill" Guarnere and "Babe" Heffron. With each story, I seem to get to know each of the members of Easy Company more in depth. This story added pieces to the puzzle and muddied others. Parts of their story didn't match some of the other stories. Nonetheless, Brothers in Battle, Best of Friends: Two WWII Paratroopers from the Original Band of Brothers Tell Their Story was enjoyable from cover to cover. Read more ( )

In World War II, a group of men trained together and then were deployed together--those that survived continued to meet at reunions. Their stories inspired "Saving Private Ryan" and "Band of Brothers".

Bill Guarnere and Babe Heffran both grew up in Philadelphia, but didn't meet until during WWII when Babe was assigned to the same company as Bill. That began a long friendship between the two men.

It was interesting to hear their real, first-hand experience of the war. And, as they note, war then was much different than it is today. I think I was most struck by their friendship though. ( )

Really enjoyed reading this dual biography of two boys from the same town that didn't meet each other until the war started and they ended up being best friends. Having seen Band of Brothers here these two veterans relate what happened in their experience with the Screaming Eagles. They reference the show occasionally as they were consulted during production. And they give some additional details.

I enjoyed their brief description of what life was like growing up lower middle class in America and how things have changed so drastically here.

Poignant, their sense of humor shines through often but so does the pathos of their experience in the war. Their story of revisits to Europe after the war has some pretty funny moments too. ( )

Written by and about a couple of friends from the 101st Airborne Band of Brothers about their experiences during WWII. It's mostly told in their words, and it makes for a great story. ( )
