In every band of brothers, there is always one who looks out for the rest. For the Easy Company, 506th Regiment, 101st Army Airborne, the legendary fighting unit of World War II, the one man every soldier in Easy Company looked up to was Major Richard D. Winters. “Biggest Brother” is the story of an ordinary man who became an extraordinary hero-from Winters' childhood in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, through the war years in which his natural skill as a leader elevated him through the ranks in combat, to now, decades later, when he may finally be awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor for his actions on D-Day.

Larry Alexander has been a journalist and columnist for the Intelligencer Journal newspaper in Lancaster, PA for more than a decade, winning numerous awards for excellence in journalism. He grew up on the same street in the same town as Major Dick Winters, three decades later.
