From Marcus Brotherton, co-author of Call of Duty, comes a new collection of untold stories from the Band of Brothers. Here, revealed for the first time, are stories of war, sacrifice and courage as seen by one of the most revered combat units in military history.
As America geared up to fight World War II, the Army decided to try something different. A select division would receive boot camp and paratrooper training at one place and at the same time. The result, the Army hoped, would be a group of men unparalleled in their cohesiveness; a force of heroic spirit and deadly efficiency. They were not disappointed.
After almost two years of hard training, the men of Easy Company parachuted into Normandy on D-Day and, later, Operation Market Garden. They fought their way through Belgium, France and Germany, survived overwhelming odds, liberated concentration camps and drank a victory toast in April of 1945 at Hitler’s hideout in the Alps.
In We Who Are Alive and Remain, 20 men who were there and are alive today—and the families of three deceased Easy Company members—recount the horrors and the victories, the bonds made, the tears and blood shed, and the brothers they lost.

I did not read the entire book because most of the book was recaps of individual incounters that was told in brief. Looking thru the book I would say that most of these story lnes were about a page to page in half.The book did not relate to the war itself but to personal stories of what happened to these individuals. I had thought this book would have been historical in nature. For me this book was a total failure.

I have read most of the other books about the guys from Easy Co. This is another excellent book about that chapter of their lives. I never get tired of reading about them. Even though the history of Company E is well documented, the tales of the individual soldiers was a little murky, until now. We could certainly use more guys like these right now! Interesting and enjoyable read from start to finish. Makes you want to meet each one of them. Thank you to each one of them for the sacrifices they made.

After reading all the memoirs of the earlier authors of the Band of Brothers books, I bought this and read it and found it very detailed from the others in the Company that weren't heard of. It gives one alot of insight to the big story that we've all seen or read. Good read.
