We had never watched the mini series "Band of Brothers" but the story of Major Winters inspired us to watch it soon after we returned home. A true hero immortalized in a beautiful statue by the side of the road on the way to Utah Beach.

Winters is an iconic figure and indeed a hero, undoubtedly. The memorial does credit to this and is not far from Brecourt, the site of his most recognised action.

On the way to Utah beach you'll pass this memorial. An easy stop to pay respect for a man made famous by the HBO series Band of Brothers.

Like so many people who read the story of the Band of Brothers and watched the series, Dick Winters and the soldiers of Easy Company have become an iconic representation of those brave American soldiers that did so much for freedom. Dick Winters is my hero for all that he did.

On you way to Utah Beach, you can't miss this monument of Major Winters. A true hero of the war he deserved this monument.

This memorial was an unexpected surprise on the road between Utah Beach and Ste. Marie du Mont. After having recently watched the HBO TV series Band of Brothers, I found this fascinating.

Visited the site as part of a tour, where he disabled the guns at Braecourt. Excellent to see that his actions have been immortalised.

Stopped at this memorial on our tour of France whilst going around a lot of the beaches and war museums. Easy to find on the way to Utah beach.

I have the ultimate respect for this man and i read that he did not want this memorial to be just about him but i am afraid this memorial does not do him justice. The memorial to Easy Company along the road is better.

Having watched the band of brothers, the best series ever made about the second World War, visiting this memorial was a must. Beautiful statue!
