Description: Tom Hanks introduces the remarkable(Publishers Weekly) story of two inseparable friends and soldiers portrayed in the HBO miniseries Band of Brothers. William Wild Bill Guarnere and Edward Babe Heffron were among the first paratroopers of the U.S. Armymembers of an elite unit of the 101st Airborne Division called Easy Company. The crack unit was called upon for every high-risk operation of the war, including D-Day, Operation Market Garden in Holland, the Battle of the Bulge, and the capture of Hitlers Eagles Nest in Berchtesgaden. Both men fought side by sideuntil Guarnere lost his leg in the Battle of the Bulge and was sent home. Heffron went on to liberate concentration camps and take Hitlers Eagles Nest hideout. United by their experience, they reconnected at the wars end and have been best friends ever since. Their story is a tribute to the lasting bond forged between comrades in armsand to all those who fought for freedom.
