Much as the U.S. Airborne is renowned for its service on D-Day and in Operation Market Garden and the Battle of the Bulge, the unit also played a significant role in North Africa and in Italy. With 160 photographs, maps, and illustrations, this history follows the airborne divisions from initial training of the 82nd in 1942 through their final, momentous missions in the Pacific. Bolstered by additional information on their equipment, division structure, and uniforms, this is an accessible account of "Jumping General" James Gavin's remarkable men and the battles that they fought.
