Stephen E. Ambrose was a renowned historian and acclaimed author of more than thirty books. Among his New York Times bestsellers are Nothing Like It in the World, Citizen Soldiers, Band of Brothers, D-Day - June 6, 1944, and Undaunted Courage. Dr. Ambrose was a retired Boyd Professor of History at the University of New Orleans and a contributing editor for the Quarterly Journal of Military History.
"This is more than military history the way it should be written: it is military history the way it can be written.Band of Brothers is an absorbing, compelling, and even stunning book. . . . This may be as close as any reader will wish to come to war without actually taking part in it."-- "Richmond Times-Dispatch"
