There are few units in the United States military as well known and as highly regarded as the Airborne infantry. These men are often some of the first on the ground and dive into some of the most hostile territory. In World War II their stories have been immortalized in movies such as “Band of Brothers”. There’s more to their story though. There were Airborne units on the ground throughout Europe and the Pacific fronts. Not only were there American Airborne units on the ground, but there were British units as well. These are some of their stories. Learn more about the historic origins of these brave men. What country started the Airborne Troops? What were some of the challenges that they faced? How were these units trained and developed? Read about the 82nd, under the command of the “Jumpin’ General” who was one of the first volunteers to sign up for the newly minted United States Paratroopers. Find out what happened when a troop drop went horribly wrong and how he turned chaos into success. Read about the battlefields of Normandy and the lessons that we learned from Sicily’s tragic outcome. Find out more about their successes and continued struggles. What did our fighting men face both in the air and on the ground? This book is action packed and filled with facts and stories of some of the lesser known units that fought on the ground in World War II. Their stories are at time harrowing and filled with peril. Ultimately, each man gave something to help win the war for the Allied Forces. Read their stories here.
