Easy Company Soldier: The Legendary Battles of a Sergeant from World War II's "Band of Brothers" : The acclaimed memoir of the "Band of Brothers" soldier who spent more consecutive days in combat than any other member of Easy Company. Drafted in 1942, Don Malarkey arrived at Camp Toccoa in Georgia and was one of the few soldiers who earned their Eagle wings. He went to England in 1943 to provide cover on the ground for the largest amphibious military attack in history: Operation Overlord. In the darkness of D-Day morning, Malarkey parachuted into France and within days was awarded a Bronze Star for his heroism in battle. He fought for thirty-five days in Normandy, nearly eighty in Holland, thirty-nine in Bastogne, and nearly thirty more in and near Haugenau, France, and the Ruhr pocket in Germany. This is his dramatic tale of those bloody days and the epic story of how an adventurous kid from Oregon became an elite paratrooper and a leader of men.
