Tom Hanks introduces the rousing story of two inseparable friends and soldiers portrayed in the HBO miniseries Band of Brothers.
William "Wild Bill" Guarnere and Edward "Babe" Heffron were among the first paratroopers of the U.S. Army-members of an elite unit of the 101st Airborne Division called Easy Company. Arguably the bravest, most efficient, physically fit, and tight-knit group of soldiers the Army has ever produced, the unit was called upon for every high-risk operation of the war, including D-Day, Operation Market Garden in Holland, the Battle of the Bulge, and the capture of Hitler's Eagle's Nest in Berchtesgaden.
Both fought side-by-side-until Guarnere lost his leg in the Battle of the Bulge nd was sent home. Heffron went on to liberate concentration camps and rake Hitler's Eagle's Nest hideout. United by their experience, the two reconnected at the war's end and have been the best of friends ever since. Their story is a tribute to the lasting bond forged between comrades in arms-and to all those who fought for freedom.

William "Wild Bill" Guarnere and Edward "Babe" Heffron were both portrayed in the HBO miniseries Band of Brothers, produced by Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks. Guarnere, a tough street kid, and Heffron, a thoughtful and introspective boy, both from South Philly, went on to become brothers in battle and best of friends.
Robyn Post has been a professional journalist for 13 years and profiled the two men for Philadelphia Magazine.From AudioFile:
This work is a memoir of two men who were, and still are, from South Philly. Guarnere and Heffron did not know each other until they were posted to E ("Easy") Company, 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment, 101st Airborne Division. Both men tell the story of their lives before, during, and after WWII. They speak with candor, and this reviewer is reminded of the stories that his father and uncle told of their career and wartime service. Dick Hill does a splendid job in performing this gem of a tale, even managing to sound like a native son of Philadelphia. Listeners are treated to a marvelous story of humans at their best and worst.
