    1. The fighting Fox Company is the company that fought with Easy Company of the 101st during WWII. Starts from their training leading up to their first jump D-Day. You then get the feel of all of the action that happens during the night and next days until they are relived and sent back to England for R&R. During this time they get replacements and you get the feel of difficult it is to step into a group of men who you have trained with and have fought with. It will take time for these knew men [...]


    2. A very good book. Many first hand accounts and plenty of maps and charts. If you enjoyed Ambrose's Band Of Brothers and Citizen Soldiers this is the book for you.
