Major Dick Winters and the men of Easy Company, 101st Airborne Division, take up a holding position in the Normandy town of Carentan on 14 June 1944, eight days after their dramatic parachute drop into Normandy on D-Day.
They have just endured a prolonged and bitter battle to secure the area, and at last the unit can enjoy a brief respite from the hand-to-hand fighting as they prepare for the next phase of their advance into France. Eventually it will lead them through the horrors of the Battle of the Bulge to the capture of Hitler’s personal “Eagles Nest” at Berchtesgaden, and the final liberation of Europe.
This outstanding release from acclaimed military artist Chris Collingwood, brings these heroic warriors to life with stunning realism.
Each print is individually numbered and hand signed by the artist and FOUR original members of Easy Company – the legendary “Band of Brothers.”
