Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description: With 450 historic images, some never before published, this book is a visual journey that chronicles the legendary 82nd Airborne Division from its training in the United States, preparation for combat in Morocco and Tunisia, through spearheading the invasion of Sicily in the United States Army’s first mass parachute assault, saving the beachhead at Salerno, fighting in the mountains of Italy, and the brutal combat at Anzio. With 228 half page or larger and 43 full page photos, this large format book provides the reader with more detail than with smaller format images. Complimenting the photographs and captions are quotes from veterans, which add context, perspective, and depth to the images. This book is the first of a multi-volume set that will provide a comprehensive collection of photos of the 82nd Airborne during World War II. This book makes a great companion to the narrative combat histories written by Phil Nordyke, the preeminent author of books about one the elite combat units of the Second World War.
