In December 1944, Hitler launched a desperate massive counterstrike at the Allies, with thirty-eight German divisions slamming through American lines. Then the 101st Airborne was thrown into the fight. Fresh from seventy-two brutal days of combat in Holland, with little food and ammunition, the Screaming Eagles struck back-and stunned the German forces. Then the real battle for the town of Bastogne-and its seven key roads-began...
This powerful, action-packed memoir puts us in the middle of the legendary fighting force known as the Screaming Eagles. Along the way, Donald R. Burgett, just nineteen years old at the time of the battle, vividly captures some of the most horrific action of World War II. From point-blank tank assaults to hand-to-hand combat, Private Burgett and his cold, hungry, and wounded fellow paratroopers stood against an overwhelming enemy force-and won the battle that secured victory for the Allies in World War II.
Donald R. Burgett lives in Howell, Michigan. He is the author of CURRAHEE! and the soon to be publishedThe Road to Arnhem From the Author I was a trooper on the line, the one who pulled the trigger I was a paratrooper in the 101st from the first day of battle to the last. I told it how it was to meet the enemy in hand to hand combat in four different campaigns. Eleven of my original Co. survived the war, most of those are now dead. I had to tell our story.
