Their story never gets old, always something new to learn.

The story of the Airborne 101 has fascinated me before the Band of Brothers epic, but the original Ambrose book/series and multiple books that have followed have become a large part of my life. What these men went through, and the bonds they formed with each other is just awe inspiring. Regular men...boys really (its incredible to believe they were largely 19-23 , or so...what were YOU doing at that age? :) ) that changed the world. I tend to buy a lot of books as I come across them (virtually all WW2, european theater) and then play catch up with them. We Who Are Alive and Remain sat on the shelf for awhile. So glad I finally chose it. I love the chronology, and also hearing from men that weren't in the spotlight as some of the others featured in the series. Amazing interviews (and photos) and stories of their journey. Excellently edited and organized. It was an interesting mix of men interviewed. You can tell they have/had very different personalities and views about their experiences. Very interesting read, hard to put down. It's a quick read, perfect to round out the summer.
