About the presentation:
Major Dick Winters of the 101st Airborne gained international acclaim when the tale of Winters and his men were depicted in the celebrated book and miniseries Band of Brothers. Hang Tough, by Erik Dorr and Jared Frederick, offers additional context to this officer who later called Hershey his home. By examining wartime letters, this engaging presentation will offer a unique blend of Winters's personal wit, leadership ethics, and broader observations of a world at war. The presentation will be followed by a Q&A session and a book signing.
Historian Jared Frederick is the author of numerous books, including Dispatches of D-Day and Hang Tough. He has appeared on PBS, C-SPAN, and Turner Classic Movies. A former park ranger at Gettysburg National Military Park, Frederick is the host of Reel History on YouTube and an instructor of history at Penn State Altoona. Visit jaredfrederick.com to learn more.
