Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

On Sunday, September 17, 1944, the 82nd Airborne Division jumped into history with the First Allied Airborne Army in a daring daylight parachute and glider-borne assault to capture key bridges at the start of Operation Market Garden. Following weeks of heavy combat in Holland, the All Americans (the name of the division in World War I when Sgt. Alvin York was one of its soldiers) were withdrawn from the frontlines for a well-deserved rest, which was almost immediately interrupted by the Battle of the Bulge, where they once again found themselves in the thick of the action, a position that remained familiar to them for the rest of the war. Following VE Day, the 82nd became part of the Allied forces occupying Berlin.

Book News Annotation:

Combining after action reports with unit histories and veteran interviews, this work offers a detailed history of the 82nd Airborne Division during WWII from the reactivation of the division in early 1942 through the development and training of the unit as America's first division-size airborne unit, through all combat operations in Europe to the end of the war. Numerous b&w historical photos and maps are included. Nordyke has written other books on WWII history. Zenith Press is an imprint of Quayside Publishing.
