********************************************** E Company
They came together, citizen soldiers, in the summer of 1942, drawn to Airborne by the $50 monthly bonus and a desire to be better than the other guy. And at its peak – in Holland and the Ardennes – Easy Company, 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment, 101st Airborne Division, US Army, was as good a rifle company as any in the world.
From the rigorous training in Georgia in 1942 to the disbanding in 1945, Stephen Ambrose tells the story of this remarkable company. In combat, the reward for a job well done is the next tough assignment, and as they advanced through Europe, the men of Easy kept getting the tough assignments.
They parachuted into France early D-Day morning and knocked out a battery of four 105 mm cannon looking down Utah Beach; they parachuted into Holland during the Arnhem campaign; they were the Battered Bastards of the Bastion of Bastogne, brought in to hold the line, although surrounded, in the Battle of the Bulge; and then they spearheaded the counteroffensive. Finally, they captured Hitler’s Bavarian outpost, his Eagle’s Nest at Berchtesgaden.
They were rough-and-ready guys, battered by the Depression, mistrustful and suspicious. They drank too much French wine, looted too many German cameras and watches, and fought too often with other GIs. But in training and combat they learned selflessness and found the closest brotherhood they ever knew. They discovered that in war, men who loved life would give their lives for them.
This is the story of the men who fought, of the martinet they hated who trained them well, and of the captain they loved who led them. E Company was a company of men who went hungry, froze, and died for each other, a company that took 150 percent casualties, a company where they Purple heart was not a medal – it was a badge of office.
The men of Easy Company, 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment, 101st Airbone Division, US Army, came from different backgrounds, different parts of the country. They were farmers and coal miners, mountain men and sons of the Deep South. Some were desperately poor, others from the middle class. One came from Harvard, one from Yale, and couple from UCLA. Only one was from the Old Army, only a few came from the National Guard or Reserves. They were citizen soldiers.
They came together in the winter of 2011, drawn together by the lure of a National Championship, and a desire to be better than the rest. At their peak – in Arlington and Eugene – the Men of O Company were as good a football team as any in the world.
From the rigorous training in the freezing rain in January, to the blistering heat of August, this is the story of a remarkable team. In practice, the reward for a job well done was a challenge to do even more the next day. As they advanced through fall camp, the men of O Company kept getting the tough assignments.
They were thrown into the fire on August 8th and completed more practice reps than any team in history; they conquered 18 practices, including 3 competition days and 2 scrimmages in the span of 14 days; they were the Unadulterated Aggressors of Autzen, brought in to Win the Day, and bring a third straight conference championship back to Eugene.
They were the rough-and-ready guys, tired of the naysayers and the doubters. They practiced harder, and prepared smarter than anyone who they would face. Through shared sweat and blood, they learned to trust the man to their left, and to their right; a brotherhood that would last a lifetime. They discovered that in a game, their teammate would sacrifice anything for the good of the group.
This is the story of the men who fought, of the coaches who taught them, and a city who loved them. A story of a group of men who would give anything for one another, and left everything on the field. A group of men who understood that accolades were not badges of honor to wear on their chest, but a standard of excellence that they must then live up to every day.
The men of O Company came from different backgrounds, different parts of the country. They were sons of Los Angeles and The Bay. From Miami and Tampa to the Northernmost point of Michigan. 2 came from Iowa, 1 from Nebraska, and six from Texas. Only a handful were from Oregon, and only 14 were seniors. They were, O Company.
