The true story of the men of Easy Company, 506th PIR, 101st Airborne
The extraordinary story of Easy Company’s men is not just about the television series, not just about the men of a single company.
This is why the D-Day Overlord website offers you a selection of various books summarizing the participation of other paratrooper units such as the Easy Company but of different regiments or divisions, but of course the film about these Brothers d ‘ Weapons and even the music of the mini-series composed by the brilliant Michael Kamen.
Good readings and good projections!
