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.Contraportada: The assignment was so hazardous, soldiers of the elite 101st Airborne could not be forced to go, they had to volunteer. The mission entailed nighttime parachuting into the midst of Nazi-occupied France some five hours before the first waves of Allied troops hit the beaches at Normandy. Their objective was to open the way for the Utah Beach landings. With almost insane heroics, these fearless warriors waged a win-or-die struggle to pave the way for the greatest invasion in history. 101st Airborne: The Screaming Eagles at Normandy stands as a lasting tribute to these American folk heroes. Noted World War II historian Mark Bando shares decades of research, the result of nearly a thousand interviews with 101st members and numerous trips to Normandy. From hundreds of rare, unpublished photographs and countless untold stories, he has recreated the paratroopers perspective of events that took place on D-Day. 101st Airborne: The Screaming Eagles at Normandy is a must for anyone interested in the untold story of what happened behind the lines on D-Day.
