On June 6, 1944, paratroops of the legendary 82nd Airborne Division jumped in to Normandy with the River, Ste. Mere Eglise, and other surrounding villages. 82nd commander Major General Matthew Ridgway would later state about their exploits: "thirty-three days of action without relief, without replacements. Every mission accomplished. No ground gained ever relinquished. "This new, large-format book contains many first-person accounts from 82nd veterans, and more than 350 photographs and maps - most published here for the first time - as well as a selection of full-color photographs of World War II era airborne uniforms and equipment.
