I think my favorite nonfiction book would have to be Biggest Brother: The Life of Major Dick Winters. I really love the Mini Series Band of Brothers and my favorite character is Dick Winters, so I was excited to read the book that told his life story. It was a real page turner for me. We actually bought it for my father-in-law for his birthday and he let me borrow it as soon as he had finished reading it. Its a pretty interesting read, if you like war stories since it covers a lot of time during WWII.
They were Easy Company, 101st Army Airborne-the World War II fighting unit legendary for their bravery against nearly insurmountable odds and their loyalty to one another in the face of death. Every soldier in this band of brothers looked to one man for leadership: Major Dick Winters.
This is the riveting story of an ordinary man who became an extraordinary hero. After he enlisted in the army's arduous new Airborne division, Winters's natural combat leadership helped him climb the ranks, but he was never far from his men. Decades later, Stephen E. Ambrose's Band of Brothers made him world-famous. Full of never-before-published photographs, interviews, and Winters's candid insights, Biggest Brother is the story of a man who became a soldier, a leader, and a living testament to the valor of the human spirit.
