    To start, you could try

    Stephen Ambrose

    Band of Brothers, E Company, 506th Regiment, 101st Airborne: From Normandy to Hitler's Eagle's Nest (New York: Simon & Schuster, 1992)

    D-Day, June 6, 1944: The Climactic Battle of World War II (New York, Simon & Schuster, 1994)

    and

    Biggest Brother : The Life of Major **** Winters, The Man Who Led the Band of Brothers by Larry Alexander.

    Regards

    I thought Iron Coffins was an incredible book about German U-Boats by Herbert Werner who was one of the few U-Boat commanders to survive. I couldn't put the book down.

    If you want a good book that will be current in 2010, I suggest "With the old Breed " by E.B. Sledge. This is the book that the miniseries "The Pacific" is based on. Very gritty, grim first person account, hard to forget, even harder to put down.

    Other good reads
    "The Longest day" by Cornelius Ryan
    "Stalingrad" by Anthony Beevor
    "The Fall of Berlin" by Anthony Beevor
    "Alamo in the Ardennes" by John C. McManus ( I really liked this one alot)

    Relatively new book on D-Day simply called "D-Day" by Anthony Beevor.
    And ofcourse the classic "The Longest Day" by Cornelius Ryan.

    Right now I'm reading Beevor's Stalingrad the Fateful Siege:1942-1943. Not that has anything to do with the 101st.

    Looking forward to that one and "Berlin" aswell.
    This author really gets your attention, doesn´t beat around the bush and isn´t hellbend on asigning good and bad labels to either side.
    I especially like his view on Montgomery.

    Two very good books are "Voices from D-day" and "Voices from Stalingrad", both by Jonathan Bastable.

    I think I might be picking up Beevor's The Fall of Berlin 1945. And Beevor pretty much points out the bad in all sides and distills WWII into the bad and worse as opposed to good guys versus the black hatted Nazis...

    Addendum: I picked it up during lunch today and thankfully haven't spilled anything on it yet.

    Should make for some nice, light summer reading.

    ...and he got a lot of problems with the Russians by doing so.
