In June 1944, the Allies launched a massive amphibious invasion against Nazi-held France. But under the cover of darkness, a new breed of fighting man leapt from airplanes through a bullet-stitched, tracer-lit sky to go behind German lines. These were the Screaming Eagles of the newly formed 101st Airborne Division. Their job was to strike terror into the Nazi defenders, delay reinforcements, and kill any enemy soldiers they met. In the next seven days, the men of the 101st fought some of the most ferocious close-quarter combat in all of World War II.

Now Donald R. Burgett looks back at the nonstop, nightmarish fighting across body-strewn fields, over enemy-held hedgerows, through blown-out towns and devastated forests. This harrowing you-are-there chronicle captures a baptism by fire of a young Private Burgett, his comrades, and a new air-mobile fighting force that would become a legend of war.

    " A great personal account of the paratroopers and their role in the invasion of Europe in WWII. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Steve | 12/8/2013

    " Very intense, brutal, and with zero fat. It's kind of an unsentimental Saving Private Ryan. I want to read all of Burgett's books. "

    " An excellent, detailed account of a WWII paratrooper in the early days of the European invasion. I'm looking forward to completing the other three titles! "

    " First person account of a 101 Airborne trooper from basic training to D-Day. It will give you goosebumps. Fantastic! "
