    A must-have for all airborne enthusiasts.

    This is the best book yet on the 82nd Airborne Division. It recounts the history of the 82nd from its inception as an infantry division in WWI through its transformation into the key airborne division of WWII. The book then goes on to explore the Division's illustrious work from WWII - present. Throughout the whole book there are brilliant photos of the 82nd in action - a vast number have never been seen before now. The author, Bob Anzuoni, is a veteran of the Division and has been Curator of the 82nd Airborne Division Museum for many years now. There is nobody better suited to tell the story, and there is no better book out on the market currently. A must-have for all airborne enthusiasts especially those who can claim the honor of being 'All American.'
