One of the most popular WW2 heroes of all times is probably Major Dick Winters of Easy Company, 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment, 101st Airborne Division. Through the wild success of the HBO mini-series Band of Brothers, him and the other members of Easy Company became known across the whole world.
Multiple books and tons of articles have been written about Major Winters and Easy Company and there are also quite a few videos available on Youtube. Some of those are really interesting as they are interview recordings with Mr. Winters when he was still alive and they give you interesting insight into this hero who yet remained a humble man.
Here is a small selection of articles that are worth reading if you want to learn more about this great man:

Thanks! The miniature should become available in a few weeks.
