I was just wondering if anyone had read this and if they felt it was worth buying.

In a word YES... I also have a copy in word format that someone sent me....( no names to protect the innocent). I also heard that the DVD will be out in November.....Box set.

I downloaded the audio book from Audible.com and have been listening to it on and off at work. So far I highly recommend it.

I have read "Band of Brothers" and I highly recommend it. It is really a page turner. Even with some of the plagiarism accusations against Stephen Ambrose, he writes excellent books.

wife's uncle knows the guy furthest to the left on the book jacket - lives in the delaware area - it is as true an account of their exploits as is possible to write

Buy it. It's a great read and makes following the mini-series storyline easier. You might want to keep an eye out for Pegasus Bridge by Ambrose too. It's about British airborne troops during the D-Day invasion.

Worth buying and reading. The series is a great companion to the book. If you like WWII books also read "Flags of our Fathers" by James Bradley (son of Corpsman John Bradley). It's about the Second (famous photo) flag raisers on Iwo Jima. I saw an interview with the author some time ago. He said the movie rights have been sold. It would be a great HBO mini series. As good as Band of Brothers. Another great one although older is "With the old breed at Pelilieu and Okinawa" by Eugene Sledge. Very graphic account of the Pacific campaign from the eyes of a Marine Rifleman. All of Ambrose stuff is good. The others that I mentioned are written in a style similar to his.
