Rate this:

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.
