Band of Brothers with Relic Signed by Forrest "Goody" Guth - Autographed Photo


Product Description

The 101st Airborne Division was activated on 15 August 1942. Nicknamed the "Screaming Eagles", its first commander Maj. Gen. William C. Lee told his new recruits that while the 101st had no history it had a "rendezvous with destiny". The paratroopers of Easy Company were part of this legendary division and were immortalized in a book by acclaimed author and historian Stephen E. Ambrose. "Band of Brothers" was later made into a mini-series by Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg. This 8" by 10" photo of the Band of Brothers in Normandy was taken on June 7, 1944 and has been personally autographed by Forrest Guth, an original member of "E" Company who is shown at the far left. It is accompanied by an actual inert bullet from an M1 Garand rifle. Limited edition print is handsomely matted in a quality 12 1/2" by 15 1/2" wooden frame and includes a Certificate of Authenticity. Forrest Guth is an original member of the third platoon, "E" company, 506th PIR, 101st Airborne Division, the most famous unit in American World War Two history, being immortalized in the Ambrose book and Spielberg/Hanks mini-series "Band of Brothers". With his best friends from childhood, Strohl and Fenstermaker, Guth joined the paratroops in 1942. All three were assigned to 'Easy' company, 506th, and all three survived the war. Guth was one of the very few original members of the company to survive the war unscathed. Forrest Guth was one of the most colorful and prominent men in the outfit, and certainly the most interesting character.
