Attachments

It’s interesting how one can form attachments based on a book read or topic researched.

I read a newspaper article today about the wife of a paratrooper in the 101st Airborne. While I don’t believe he was in Easy Company (the company Band of Brothers by Stephen E. Ambrose focuses on), I still felt a rush reading the article, as though I were reading about someone I knew peripherally.

I guess that just says how good a writer Ambrose is.

  1. Ambrose is indeed an excellent author. I’ve read D-Day and Undaunted Courage (the Lewis and Clark expedition). Both were excellent but I really enjoyed Undaunted Courage. It put the whole expedition into a different light for me.
