About this title

Synopsis:

This unprecedented look at the 101st Airborne contains photographs so rare, you won't believe your eyes! Mark Bando made an incredible find when he unearthed 50 color images of the Screaming Eagles taken at Normandy. These photographs, together with firsthand accounts and day-to-day, minute-by-minute history of the 101st Airborne, tell the story of this elite fighting group. These extremely rare images, together with more than 200 previously unpublished archival photographs from the author's own collection, provide a dynamic look at these daring World War II paratroopers.

From the Inside Flap:

For many months, the men of the 101st Airborne Division prepared for the great Allied landings in France. From their first day of training, the volunteers for this hazardous duty were subjected to severe physical and mental tests. Those who were unable to adapt were promptly eliminated from parachute units. By the time the Screaming Eagles landed in Normandy, they were tough and disciplined, their morale high. The soldiers of the 101st Airborne were imbued with the will to win, regardless of any obstacles they might confront. These young men didn’t represent any particular section of the Unites States; they came from all states of the union and all walks of life. The farmer, the artisan, the laborer, the doctor, the priest, the professor, all were found among their ranks. They were unrelenting in their determination to bring complete defeat to the enemy but generous in their feelings for the friendly people whose homeland was occupied by Nazi troops. The 101st Airborne troopers of World War II had a high degree of esprit de corps. They wore their distinctive uniforms and insignia with pride and confidence. Trained to go for long periods with little food or sleep, they were especially fitted to carry out difficult missions. Descending from the skies by parachute and glider, they exemplified the spirit and daring of American youth. With their comrades in the U.S. Air Force, they were ready and eager to take the fighting to the enemy. 101st Airborne: The Screaming Eagles at Normandy celebrates their accomplishments from their point of view and with hundreds of rare photographs.
