Search-engine BoB website
The Paratrooper Webbase has been a vast resource for over 1.150.000 visitors during the last years. What started as a STIWOT website on Band of Brothers has become an information 'Base' on all allied Paratroopers, their gear, vehicles, uniforms and heritage ! Our Research submenu has developed into an interactive way of sharing historical information.Together with our friends from all around the world we are dedicated to sharing as much as information as possible with you, our visitors, on the WW2 Paratroopers. We are honored to take you along our great crusade. Airborne Forever !!

Based on this website and a bunch of close friends we have started the “Band of Brothers Living History Group”.

We are all set to make this website even better and more educational. Apart from Easy Company 506 th we will also report on other US Airborne Divisions and Regiments that were active during WWII.

Our aim is to keep the memory of the actions of the US Airborne troops alive and to collect and preserve items and materiel used in WWII by means of research and living history, often in cooperation with other living history groups.

Several members of our group have adopted graves of US paratroopers interred at the US cemeteries at Margraten ( Netherlands ) or Henri-Chapelle ( Belgium ).

Members of Band of Brothers Living History Group will attend functions and commemorations, accompany visiting veterans and visit cemeteries and historical sites, both in The Netherlands and abroad.

Over the next few months many new articles, reports and photo material will be added on-line and you will be able to take a virtual tour with us. Or maybe you can accompany us or visit us during one of our actual tours?  We are always looking forward to meeting new friends.

We will follow the route of free gathering and providing of information, maintaining contact with veterans and their families in order to preserve their knowledge, experiences and stories and to pass these on to generations to come.

Lest we forget!
