From the fields of Normandy to the streets of Nijmegen and the frozen hills of the Ardennes, US paratroopers proved themselves some of the toughest and most determined soldiers of World War II. This study examines what made these soldiers special and how they lived, trained and fought. It is the story of the men who invariably led the way – the soldiers who flew to battle and walked home.
