I just finished reading Beyond Band of Brothers: The Memoir of Major Dick Winters.
To be honest, the guy needs a better editor or publisher. There were horribly written sentences, bad paragraph divisions, missing punctuation, and other bad editorial work.
I don't blame Major Dick Winters. He is a soldier not a writer. His story needed to be told; he just needs to hire a better editor.
But...the stories are enough to keep you reading, and the final chapter is worth it. His final list of leadership principles are invaluable. While watching Band of Brothers, I was inspired the portrayal of Major Winters's leadership and morality.
