Parachute Infantry: The book that inspired Band of Brothers (Paperback) by Webster David
Paratrooper David Kenyon Webster jumped into the chaos of occupied Europe on D-Day fighting his way through Holland and finally capturing Hitler's Eagle's Nest. He was the only member of Easy Company to write down his experiences as soon as he came home from war. Webster records with visceral and sometimes brutal detail what it is like to take a bullet in the leg to fight pitched battles capturing enemy towns and to endure long periods of boredom punctuated by sudden moments of terror. But most of all Parachute Infantry shows how a group of comrades entered the furnace of war and came out brothers.
