This book traces the legendary 82nd Airborne's history from its roots in the 82nd Infantry Division to its current service. While providing a historical overview of the grand heritage of the All Americans, author Fred J. Pushies focuses primarily on the unit's contemporary service. He discusses the division's involvement in Grenada and Panama; its service throughout the 1990s in Iraq, Haiti, Bosnia, and Kosovo; and, since 9/11, its active presence in Afghanistan and Iraq. The result is the most thorough and up-to-date account of the legendary All Americans in the modern era.
