Moreover, he did History an incredible service by collecting the stories of ordinary men. The living memory of World War II As a history lover, and as someone who loves not getting flamed on Goodreads, I am loathe to say what I am about to say. The living memory of World War II is fading fast, and it is due to the efforts of historians, biographers, and researchers like Stephen Ambrose that we will have so many incredible stories, even after that generation has passed into memory.
Still, I gave him a pass, knowing that sometimes writers make mistakes when it comes to citing sources. Even so, I had to take a break. The relationship had become strained. I spent an enjoyable Thanksgiving watching it on the couch. It is the greatest time-suck in my life. Finally, after the 20th viewing, I decided to read the source material: Band of Brothers by Stephen Ambrose. War as it was seen by the men who fought it. Ambrose attempts to replicate, on a smaller scale, the feats of Lord and Ryan.
His prose is blunt, ugly, and disjointed.
There is tortured grammar and a noticeable lack of editing. There is not a smidgeon of grace or elegance to be found. Webster, unlike Ambrose, writes in vivid prose that is alive with acute perception. First, there is absolutely no tension or drama in the story.
Instead of taking oral histories and spinning them into a narrative, Ambrose elects to directly quote the men he has interviewed. Furthermore, there was no vividness, no you-are-there-ness to the story. This is not history as it happened, but history as told by some limited viewpoints.
And this limited viewpoint is why Ambrose is criticized so often — by other veterans — for utterly screwing up the facts. He only listens to one side and seldom takes the time to corroborate.
And by lack of objectivity, I mean abject hero-worship. Here, once again, lest I be digitally mobbed, I wish to interject that yes, the men of Easy Company were heroic. They were young men who sacrificed their youths to do a dangerous job that their country asked them to do. Two dreams could come true for Diamond Houston when her idol, Jesse Eagle, walks into the rundown roadhouse where she is singing for tips.
And Jesse does something special to her when their eyes meet — lighting passionate fires inside Diamond with the unspoken promise of nights to remember…and the one thing she desires most of all: true love. The voice of an angel brought Jesse back to this small I town in middle-of-nowhere Tennessee. And everything may be what Jesse has to risk if he wants this rare jewel to sparkle for him alone.

On D-Day, Winters assumed leadership of the Band of Brothers when its commander was killed and led them through the Battle of the Bulge and into Germany—by which time each member had been wounded. Neither a protest against nor a glamorization of war, this is a moving memoir by the man who earned the love and respect of the men of Easy Company—and who is a hero to new generations worldwide. It turns out the specter has just as much interest in solving the murder as Kath.

Summer at Willow Lake is the story that started it all. Meet Olivia, Connor and the families and friends of Willow Lake that make these emotional romances must-reads.
A posh resort in its heyday, the camp is now in disarray and Olivia is forced to hire contractor Connor Davis— a still-smoldering flame from her own summers at camp. But as the days grow warm, not even the inviting blue waters of Willow Lake can cool the passions flaring or keep shocking secrets at bay. The nostalgic joy of summers past breathes new promise into a special place and people…a promise meant to last long after the season ends. Sarah DiGregorio shares the nostalgia most of us feel when it comes to slow cookers.
