about this item

Tom Hanks introduces the ?remarkable?(Publishers Weekly) 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. The crack 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 ******?s Eagle?s Nest in Berchtesgaden. Both men fought side by side?until Guarnere lost his leg in the Battle of the Bulge and was sent home. Heffron went on to liberate concentration camps and take ******?s Eagle?s Nest hideout. United by their experience, they reconnected at the war?s end and have been best friends ever since. Their story is a tribute to the lasting bond forged between comrades in arms?and to all those who fought for freedom.

A firsthand account of the wartime experiences of two soldiers portrayed in the HBO series Band of Brothers pays tribute to the lasting bond forged between comrades in arms and their roles with Easy Company during D-Day, Operation Market Garden, the Battle of the Bulge, the liberation of concentration camps, and the capture of Berchtesgaden.
