101st Airborne by Mark Brando
Book DescriptionIn 1942, the 82nd infantry Division at Camp Claiborne, Louisiana, was split in two. One of the new divisions began intense preparation and training for a surprise landing on Nazi-occupied Europe, at Normandy. The division selected became the 101st Airborne, the now-legendary "Band of Brothers". This book covers the divisions heroic performance on D-Day and follows them right up to the Allied victory in Europe. Filled with historic images, many of them published here for the first time, it is a tribute to the fallen who sacrificed themselves to secure the future and a testament to those who survived to build a better world. This is the story of an accomplishment well known but rarely so dramatically depicted: landing on Utah Beach, from the sea, descending by glider and parachute. Stirring word and pictures capture the landing, linking both Utah and Omaha beachheads, the key points in the allied landing; the breaking of the German drive for the coast; their resolute, implacable stand at Bastonge where the request to surrender from the German commander was met with the brief refusal :"Nuts!"
