Meet the Author

Ian Gardner served for five years in Support Company, 10th Battalion, The Parachute Regiment as a medic, before leaving the Territorial Army in 1993 due to a parachuting injury. Ian has always loved military history but it was several years after leaving 10 Para that his interest in WWII US Paratroopers really began. Inspired by a visit to Normandy in 2000 he decided to focus on the 101st Airborne Division and in particular the 3rd Battalion of the 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment. This book is his first historical work co-written with Roger Day. He is married, has two teenage children and lives near Aldershot in Hampshire. Roger Day's family have lived in and around the village of Ramsbury for generations. Roger spent his childhood and early adult years living in the village and during that time became very interested in the wartime history of the local area. His interest in wartime history resulted in the publication, in 1999, of his first book, before co-authoring this book with Ian Gardner.
