A period piece set to the backdrop of  "The Seven Years War" (French & Indian War) in the mid-18th Century.

Although the real music critics gave this score mixed reviews, I personally loved the movie, which may have biased my opinion of the CD.  I find that as I listen to it, I can visualize the events that occurred in the movie.  I think that this is what soundtracks are all about.

A stalwart Tom Hanks plays Captain Miller, a soldier's soldier, who takes a small band of troops behind enemy lines to retrieve a private whose three brothers have recently been killed in action. It's a public relations move for the Army, but it has historical precedent dating back to the Civil War. Some critics of the film have labeled the central characters stereotypes. If that is so, this movie gives stereotypes a good name: Tom Sizemore as the deft sergeant, Edward Burns as the hotheaded Private Reiben, Barry Pepper as the religious sniper, Adam Goldberg as the lone Jew, Vin Diesel as the oversize Private Caparzo, Giovanni Ribisi as the soulful medic, and Jeremy Davies, who as a meek corporal gives the film its most memorable performance.

The Ultimate WW-II Experience!
Based on the bestseller by Stephen E. Ambrose, the epic 10-part miniseries Band of Brothers tells the story of Easy Company, 506th Regiment of the 101st Airborne Division, U.S. Army. Drawn from interviews with survivors of Easy Company, as well as soldiers' journals and letters, Band of Brothers chronicles the experiences of these men who knew extraordinary bravery and extraordinary fear. They were an elite rifle company parachuting into France early on D-Day morning, fighting in the Battle of the Bulge and capturing Hitler's Eagle's Nest at Berchtesgaden. They were also a unit that suffered 150 percent casualties, and whose lives became legend.

Featuring Allan W. Eckert's, "Narratives of America" Series

The FrontiersmanThe Frontiersmen, by Allan W. Eckert, Bantam/Domain, 1984.

From Mike Dunton:
Eckert is a masterful storyteller.  He uses thorough research of historical fact and fleshes it out to craft a captivating storyline.  I wish that history was this interesting when it was presented to me as a young student.

If you had 18th Century frontier ancestors, you may catch a glimpse of what their life was like.  My edition was 750+ pages with extensive research reference notes, glossary, and index.

The Wilderness WarThe Wilderness War, by Allan W. Eckert, Bantam/Domain, 1985.

From the Publisher:
From Niagara Falls to Lake Champlain, the warriors of the mighty Iroquois ruled supreme. Not even the savagery of the French and Indian wars could cool their fury or halt their power. But by 1770 the restless white men were warring once again. Thayendanegea, the valiant Iroquois war chief, allied his fierce tribes with the one white man the Indians loved and trusted, Sir William Johnson. Once more the frontier would erupt, pitting the Indians' unvanquished spirit against the white setters' relentless challenge. Allan W. Eckert's Narratives of America are true sagas of the brave men and courageous women who won our land. Every character and event in this sweeping series is drawn from actual history and woven into the vast and powerful epic that was America's westward expansion. Allan W. Eckert has made America's heritage an authentic, exciting, and powerful reading experience.
