This is a reproduction of a clicker used by the soldiers of the 101st Airborne Division (“Screaming Eagles”) of the U.S. Army to communicate with each other following their parachuting into Normandy (from the west, not the north) during the D-Day landing, one of the most significant events of the 20th Century. If you’ve seen “The Longest Day” you know what I’m talking about. This clicker is an exact match to a real version, which was used as a model, with the circle on the back being in the center rather than on the end (see picture below). The manufacturer went to extensive lengths to even match the clicking sound with the real one. Also included will be a copy of an article from the International Herald Tribune describing the development of the 50th anniversary reproduction (20 years ago). Little known factoid about Omaha Beach: Ever wonder why Omaha Beach wasn't softened up with bombs before our boys landed? Well, all 25,000 bombs that were supposed to hit the beach struck inland about a mile. It was the single greatest failure of D-Day.

Domestic shipping is $4; more for foreign delivery. California residents add 8% for sales tax.
