Currahee!: A Screaming Eagle at Normandy Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This acknowledged classic vividly portrays the tragic chaos of war accompanied by incredible acts of heroism in the midst of death and destruction.

Book News Annotation:

"Curahee!" was the battle cry of the regiment portrayed in Spielberg's Private Ryan: the 101st Division. Private Burgett's memoir, originally published in 1967, offers firsthand insight into the highs and lows of combat. Includes a foreword by historian Stephen Ambrose, and photos of the paratroopers and World War II scenes.
