Impressively illustrated coffee table tribute to the unit that became known as the 'Band of Brothers' and inspired the acclaimed television drama of that name. Published to mark the 65th Anniversary of the 10st Airborne. --Soldier Magazine

The story of the 101st Airborne in WW II has been told many times. However, when author Mark Bando sets pen to paper, he draws on more than 900 interviews with the soldiers who jumped at Normandy and Market Garden, fought at the Bulge and occupied Hitler's Eagle's Nest. 10st Airborne is another product of the author's lifelong commitment to sorting, organizing, and retelling the paratroopers stories. Illustrated with hundreds of never-before-published personal snapshots and utilizing first-hand accounts, Bando inimatley examines the bold accomplishments of the Division form its training in the United States to the end of World War II. 101st Airborne is the best book available that tells the story of the Screaming Eagles from the perspective of the paratroopers who made the jumps, fought the battles, and suffered the casualties --Military Trader

Reseña del editor:

In 1942, the 82nd Infantry Division at Camp Claiborne, Louisiana, was split in two. One of the new divisions began intense preparations and training for a surprise landing on the Nazi-occupied European continent. The location was Normandy, France; the date was June 6, 1944; and the division was the 101st Airborne: the legendary "band of brothers."

This is the story of that divisions heroic performance on D-Day, and right up to the Allied victory in Europe. Filled with historic images, many never before published, it is also a tribute to the fallen men of the 101st--the artists and athletes, scientists and mathematicians, architects and builders whose sacrifice secured the future but left the human race much diminished. Theirs is an accomplishment well-known but rarely so dramatically depicted: Here is the 101st landing on Utah Beach, coming in by parachute, or glider, or from the sea. Stirring words and pictures capture the landing, linking the Utah and Omaha beachheads; the divisions breaking of the German drive to the coast; and their brilliant stand at Bastogne; a refusal to yield so famously summed up in the commanders reply to a German call for surrender: "Nuts."
