About this product
- DescriptionThe delivery of entire divisions to battlefields behind enemy lines by parachute and glider was a unique feature of World War II. This book covers the mature phase of these operations from the tactical failures of night-time drops at D-Day, through the daylight jumps at Arnhem and the Rhine, to the end of the war. Paying special attention to often overlooked aspects of airborne operations, Battle Orders 25 gives a detailed account of the successes and failures of the US Airborne divisions within Europe, focusing on their organizational structure during 1944-45, and covering two of the world's finest units: the 82d and 101st 'Screaming Eagles.'
