I thought it was a good book years ago when I first read it, before the miniseries. I always enjoy books my Stephen Ambrose as his work always have a more personal feel to it. He also covers of the general experience of your average soldier than most authors. If you enjoyed the series, you will love the book.

Awesome book about an airborne company that fought in most of the major battles of World War Two and in most cases came out on top. Highly recommended and Freedom isn't Free!!
