Synopsis: Published to celebrate the 65th anniversary of the 101st Airborne Includes 15 maps, and previously unpublished photographs Colour appendix listing 101st Airborne collectibles and memorabilia Full details of the Normandy landings, and fight to Germany 101st Airborne were the original Band of Brothers Reviews in, Military Illustrated, Soldier, Motoring & Leisure, Globe and Laurel The story of the 101st Airborne in World War II is perhaps the best known of any in modern American military history. Both their victories and sacrifices have been etched into our collective memories in books, award-winning television series, and major motion pictures, and have served as proud point-of-refence for countless fighting men and women who have come to serve in the years since WWII. The 101st's zig-zag journey in World War II would lead them through the bloodiest and most strategically important campaigns of the European theatre, from D-Day at Normandy to the daring daylight combat jump of Operation Market Garden to the unfathomable ordeal that was the Battle of the Bulge. It was on the frontlines of these unforgiving battlefields that the fighting spirit of the Screaming Eagles would shine its brightest. All told, the 101st would lose over 1,700 killed in action and over 6,300 wounded in action. In the wake of casualties, however, the unrivaled legacy of this determined fighting force would forever be carved in the annals of American military history. For their efforts during World War II, the 101st Airborne Division was awarded four campaign streamers and two Presidential Unit Citations. Unlike any book available on the famous 'Band of brothers' 101st Airborne: The Screaming Eagles in World War II is filled with historic images and dramatic text from acclaimed military historian and 101st Airborne Division - expert Mark Bando, plus detailed maps, uniforms, insignia, weaponry. It is a fitting tribute to the men of the 101st, from those who fell in combat to those that have left us since to those who are still among us. Never-before-published photographs and firsthand accounts capture their bold accomplishments during the war, including a brilliant stand at Bastogne where their refusal to yield was famously summed up in their commander's reply to a German call for surrender: 'Nuts'!

Review: 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
