This unprecedented look at the 101st Airborne contains photographs so rare, you won't believe your eyes! Mark Bando made an incredible find when he unearthed 50 color images of the Screaming Eagles taken at Normandy. These photographs, together with firsthand accounts and day-to-day, minute-by-minute history of the 101st Airborne, tell the story of this elite fighting group. These extremely rare images, together with more than 200 previously unpublished archival photographs from the author's own collection, provide a dynamic look at these daring World War II paratroopers.

This 10 ½ by 10 ½ inch book is more than just another coffee table book. This book is organized into 10 chapters detailing the training, preparation and jump into Normandy by the 101st Airborne Division.

Bando, through his unique relationship with over 900 World War II airborne veterans spanning 30 years, has unearthed a treasure-trove of photographs (some in full color) never before seen by the public. He has liberated them from footlockers and shoeboxes left in attics all over America by the old veterans who never spoke of their service. Each chapter contains well-written commentary accompanied by first person accounts by the veterans. Their memories and recollections provide a stark realism to every chapter. Bando even dedicates one the chapters to the 82nd Airborne Division, showing while favoring the Screaming Eagles, he's not about to ignore the great contributions of the "other" American airborne division on D-Day.

The book contains a glossary of terms and an abbreviated index. But it's the human connection that makes this a great book in its own right. It was an important research tool in writing my historical novel, The Last Jump and I'm sure it will enlighten and entertain any World War II buff who reads it. It is being republished in a softcover version shortly and it is worth buying regardless of price!

Mark A. Bando has followed up his original Screaming Eagles in Normandy work with this update which not only plays upon his first book about the 101st in Normandy but presents new photos gleaned from his tireless work with veterans and their families. It's amazing how many troopers took cameras into Normandy and how great it is to be able to read of their exploits and see the shots they took. Bando is not just a great researcher of the 101st but has become so close to the men and their families that he has unmatched access to information, comments and photos that make Bando's work a "must read" for those of us interested in the 101st ABN in WWII. I can't wait to see more of his books.

I needed a quick,concise Normandy history FAST because I was headed to Normandy.And I received it post haste, and this book is what I needed to prepare for this trip. You see, in 1971 I was part of the 101st Airborne Division as an enlisted man. In 1984 I met a retired Warrant Officer who told me he was in the 101st. Where, I asked - "Normandy Invasion" was his quick reply. In 2014 I stood on the ground he helped liberate. Small world, "aint it"!!!!

Absolutely fantastic book! I have read many of the personal accounts of WWII, and this one was one of the best accounts of the 101st Airborne's contributions.
