“This e-book box set includes the following books by Stephen E. Ambrose, chronicling the pivotal moments from WWII—from D-Day to the capture of Hitler’s Eagle’s Nest.
Band of Brothers: A riveting account of Easy Company, 506th Airborne Division, U.S. Army—responsible for everything from parachuting into France early D-Day morning to the capture of Hitler's Eagle's Nest at Berchtesgaden. Drawing on hours of interviews with survivors as well as the soldiers' journals and letters, here are the stories, often in the men's own words, of these American heroes.
D-Day: The preeminent chronicle of the most important day in the twentieth century —drawn from more than 1,400 interviews with American, British, Canadian, French, and German veterans.
Pegasus Bridge: A gripping account of the first engagement of D-Day—Pegasus Bridge. In the early morning hours of June 6, 1944, a small detachment of British airborne troops stormed the German defense forces and paved the way for the Allied invasion of Europe. Ambrose traces each step of the preparations over many months to the minute-by-minute excitement of the hand-to-hand confrontations on the bridge.”
