Customer Review

VINE VOICEon 26 May 2002
A book which concentrates on one member and his friends of the 101st Airborne Division on D-Day and the following 6 days of chaos,determination and savage fighting.
This is a story of one man from the day he joins this unit, through the training in The States, billeting in England and then finally the drop into action.
It is very much a personal account and his memories recall stories of humour,heroism,sacrifice and graphic portrayals of the real horror of war. The latter point is most exemplified at one point in the book where they are attacking across an open field and his friend running near him is hit by a shell which removes the top half of his body, leaving the legs to run on for a few more steps !
A book which I could not put down and would thoroughly recommend to anyone who is interested in personal accounts of this period in our history.
