Book Description

30 Mar 2001

A minute-by-minute and day-by-day account of the elite 101st Airborne’s daring parachute landing behind enemy lines at Normandy is accompanied by firsthand accounts from Airborne veterans and forty incredible, previously unknown (let alone published) color photos of the “Screaming Eagles” at Normandy and in Great Britain prior to the invasion. Accompanying these remarkable D-Day color Kodachromes—which were unearthed in the attic of an Army doctor’s daughter—are more than two hundred black-and-white photographs from 101st survivors and the author’s own private collection. This is an unprecedented look at an elite fighting force during one of the last century’s most crucial moments.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 16 Feb 2005
Format:Hardcover
This book is worth its weight in gold to Screaming Eagle fans. It goes into incredible detail about the actions of the 101st in the Normandy campaign. Graphic accounts from veterans and interesting pictures of the men themselves and the places where it all went down ensure you know every detail about D-day and the weeks that followed. If you're a fan of the 101st and plan to make a trip to Normandy, BUY THIS BOOK AND TAKE IT WITH YOU! It can take you to the places where the 101st engaged in combat and will certainly help you out. And for those 82nd Airborne fans, it even has a page or 3 about their escapades in Normandy.
Very deserving of 5 stars, great buy!
