    1. A history of the 505 PIR that is heavily based on interviews and personal accounts.

    2. From the author of All American, All the Way-The history of the 82nd Airborne of World War II. The 505th Parachute Infantry Regiment of the 82nd Airborne made all four combat jumps and fought in the fiercest battle campaigns in Europe. They landed in Sicily, Salerno, Normandy, and Holland. They fought and died in the bloodiest battles of Sicily, Naples-Foggia, Normandy, the Rhineland, the Ardennes, (the Battle of the Bulge) and Central Germany.


    3. Good read for anyone who enjoyed band of brothers. heavy on personal accounts, however, it seems as if the editor went on vacation at times and left their assistant to keep the story straight
