How Easy Company Became A

Band of Brothers

Illustrated by Anneke Helleman

This illustrated story book will immerse students and adults alike in the stories of ordinary men who courageously volunteered to join the elite paratroopers. Chris Langlois, a grandson of medic Eugene Roe, who served in Easy Company, collaborated with artist Anneke Helleman from The Netherlands to create an introduction to the men of Easy Company. This is the beginning of a journey for the reader to learn more about these heroes.
