HANG TOUGH: The World War II Letters of Major Dick Winters

By Erik Dorr & Jared Frederick


A Presentation by Historian Jared Frederick  


Major Dick Winters of the 101st Airborne gained international acclaim when the tale of Easy Company was 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.
