    Best book on 101'st Airborne in World War 2.

    This is a excellent addition to an already outstanding volume of work by author Mark Bando. He has taken over 40 years of research and 1000's of interviews with WW2 101st Airborne vet's and turned it into a easy to read book that covers all of the 101' s training and battles. If you would like to learn more about the airborne operations in WW2. This is the book for you.

    First error page 7?

    Found duplicate sentences with two different dates on page 7. How reliable of a read can this really be? Shame to the author and editor!

    Excellent work; highly recommend

    This is Mark Bando's follow-up to his 1994 book 'The 101st Airborne at Normandy'. The pictures, first person accounts, and misc. details (e.g. equipment) are priceless for anyone interested in World War II subjects. While Mr. Bando discusses all three regiments of the 101st (501, 502, 506), the 502nd seems to get the most print. This book compliments Ambrose's 'Band of Brothers' and Burgett's 'Currahee' to provide a fuller picture of what occurred in Normandy with the 101st. The only other thing you need is a good map of the Cotentin peninsula circa 1944.
