A..... not to put down book,
This review is from: Tonight We Die as Men: The Untold Story of Third Battalion 506 Parachute Infantry Regiment from Toccoa to D-Day (General Military) (Hardcover)
Band of Brothers brought us Easy Co 506th.101st AB
Tonight We Die As Men..... brings us 3rd Battalion,506th of the 101st AB.. companies G,H and I and their Objectives for D Day,6th June 1944.
The wooden road and foot bridges at Brevands.
If you want a book that is detailed with many pictures and maps so that you can follow the route the Paratroopers took from their DZ to their Objectives and describing personal experiences some funny most exciting this is the book.
St Come Du Mont/The Locks at Barquette/Frigot farm all of which are basically unchaged since the war so you can go there to this day and see what's what...all have stories attached to them and this book explains them in detail.
Vetrans miryad accounts of the days in June are enthraling.
The Battle of Bloody Gulge against FJR6 and 17 SS Pnzr grenadiers is very well explained.
Lots of veterans have contributed to this book.
One of the better books I have read on the Normandy campaign. A must get.
