  • I absolutely loved this book, it's definitely one of the best I've ever read. That's why I gave it a full 5 stars. If you haven't watched the HBO mini-series, I highly suggest reading this book first and then immediately diving into the show. It really enhances the experience because of the multitude of characters involved. However, there is one major issue that I have to address, and it's a big one - the narration. It felt like the narrator was competing against himself to see how many names and locations he could mispronounce. Even if this audiobook was recorded before the show, it wouldn't have taken much effort to do a bit of research and get the pronunciations right. It's incredibly distracting and takes away from the overall enjoyment. If this bothers you too, I recommend giving the book a try instead.
  • The audiobook is definitely worth checking out, although the Narrator seriously messes up some names and places. It detracts from the overall experience. One would expect that when narrating a book that features actual people and locations that still exist, the Narrator would do their research to ensure accurate pronunciation.
  • I highly recommend this book. It tells the story of brave men who selflessly sacrificed everything for their country and for each other, fighting to protect the world from the spread of communism.
  • This is a great story, and the TV series really did justice to the content of the book. However, the book's power lies in the inherent historical significance rather than the author's exceptional storytelling ability. He does a good job of conveying the story, but personally, I feel that reading the firsthand accounts of the men would have been more preferable than this retelling.
  • The book beautifully captures the essence of E Company, providing a satisfying conclusion to the characters' journeys. I am truly grateful for brave individuals like them, who serve our country.
  • The historical account presented in the book is occasionally biased and contradicts well-documented historiography. It's not entirely biased, but it could have been improved. For instance, the author claims that Eisenhower "quickly agreed" with Monty on the extremely risky and complex plan of Market Garden. However, if one delves into the works of our highly regarded historians, it becomes evident that Eisenhower strongly opposed this plan for several weeks and eventually settled for a significantly simplified and less ambitious version. Nevertheless, the mission still ended in a spectacular failure. There are numerous other instances where the author should have consulted our esteemed academic historians. He did an alright job, but considering his excellent reputation, he could have done better.
  • This book is a must-read for every young individual, as it offers valuable insights into the importance of preventing another world war and the efforts we should make to achieve that goal.
