BAND OF BROTHERS: E Company, 506th Regiment, 101st Airborne from Normandy to Hitler's Eagle's Next

by | Read by Cotter Smith

History • 5 hrs. • Abridged • © 1998

If Cotter Smith understands anything about reading for an audience, he understands the concept of subtlety. In BAND OF BROTHERS he imbues Ambrose's narrative about men in war with a voice that knows full well the value of restraint. This investigation of the European theater of WWII would have been easy for Smith to produce as mere melodrama. But he holds back, and the result is a powerful tale told in their own words by the men of this century's last great war. Smith proves conclusively that real stories of courage and honor don't need false bravado to communicate their poignant messages of camaraderie in the face of horror, horror in the service of necessity, necessity in the pursuit of liberty.
