Band of Brothers
In 1942, E Company was created as an elite rifle company for the U.S. Army. The group of citizen soldiers, 140 men, and their seven officers, saw action throughout WWII, and were present at Normandy and also at Hitler's Eagle's Nest. Stephen E. Ambrose's Band of Brothers tells the stories behind the historical facts, of the men and their battles.
We will be discussing Band of Brothers at the College's lunchtime book discussion group on Thursday, February 3rd around noon. We have copies of the book to lend in print and on audio. Bring your lunch!
