One of the most famous units of the U.S. Army during WWII was Easy Company, the soldiers who became known as the Band of Brothers. This 1/62 scale model plane is the same kind these paratroopers leaped from behind enemy lines at Utah Beach on D-Day, June 6, 1944. Signed by William "Wild Bill" Guarnere, one of the original 140 members of Easy Company.


18" wingspan x 13"H.


The C-47, the military version of the DC-3, is still in use today, and is one of the most influential aircraft in history. This “Band of Brothers” C-47 is signed by William “Wild Bill” Guarnere, one of the original 140 members of Easy Company, 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment, 101st Airborne Division.


William Guarnere joined Easy Company to fight in World War II. He made his first combat jump on D-Day as part of the Allied invasion of France. Guarnere earned the nickname "Wild Bill" and lived up to it; he was terror on the battlefield and had a reckless attitude toward the Germans. Guarnere received the Silver Star for combat during the Brecourt Manor Assault on D-Day, and was later decorated with two Bronze Stars and two Purple Hearts, making him one of only two Easy Company members, along with Lynn Compton, to be awarded the Silver Star throughout the duration of the war while a member of Easy.

    In 1967, the boys of Charlie Company went to war in the Mekong Delta, the homeland of the Viet Cong, and entered a foreign land of murderous heat, unforgiving jungle, and a new age of guerilla warfare. This "band of brothers" journeyed from boot camp to combat, and for the lucky ones, back home—experiencing their horror, their pain, their misery, their happiness and above all, their camaraderie together. Now, nearly fifty years later, they’re uniting once again to share their stories of courage under fire with the world.
