In December 1944, Hitler launched a desperate massive counterstrike at the Allies, with thirty-eight German divisions slamming through American lines. Then the 101st Airborne was thrown into the fight. Fresh from seventy-two brutal days of combat in Holland, with little food and ammunition, the Screaming Eagles struck back-and stunned the German forces. Then the real battle for the town of Bastogne-and its seven key roads-began…

This powerful, action-packed memoir puts us in the middle of the legendary fighting force known as the Screaming Eagles. Along the way, Donald R. Burgett, just nineteen-years-old at the time of the battle, vividly captures some of the most horrific action of World War II. From point-blank tank assaults to hand-to-hand combat, Private Burgett and his cold, hungry, and wounded fellow paratroopers stood against an overwhelming enemy force-and won the battle that secured victory for the Allies in World War II.

    " A good addition to 101st, 506th history. "

    " Book 3 of 4 detailing Burgett's World War 2 experiences in the 101st Airborne Division. This one recounts being trapped at Bastogne during the Battle of the Bulge. Caution: This is hard core military history and Burgett cuts no corners. Not for the squeamish. "

    " Third installment- in the cold and snow of the Battle of the Bulge. Least favorite of the three I have read, but still excellent. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jim Bradford | 7/14/2009

    " Fantastic! There is nothing quite like a first-hand account of military action, and this story doesn't disappoint. It opens the reader to a horrific view of a history conflict as experienced by a single soldier. Sobering and heavy, but action packed and informative at the same time. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tyler Dahl | 4/14/2009

    " Excellent first hand account of what the Para Troopers went through during this epic battle. This should be required reading in our schools so that our younger generations can gain a better perspective of the greatest generation. "

    " When encircled, don't give up! The broken nails you suffer from the choke hold on the enemies supplies will soon be forgotten.

    Although the shape that Germany was in at this point in the war would not have stopped the allies, only slowed them down. "
