Author Stephen Ambrose Passes

Sun Oct 13, 2002 9:31 pm

Historian/Author Stephen Ambrose has died.  Crying

No word yet on the cause but he was 66. It was just announced as breaking news on CNN.

He wrote a lot of WWII history books, although the last big one he did, which was titled, "Band of Brothers" did generate a plagiarism controversy.

He was 66.

Really! that too bad, I always liked his books, very personal and gripping accounts of WWII

Thats so sad, L-188, Band of Brothers was not the one with the plagiarism controversy. The plagiarism was in "Wild Blue".

Baand of Brothers was made into one awesome mini-series.
