Many troops of the 82nd and 101st Airborne had their introduction to the Normandy countryside by way of a perilous landing in a glider. This is a too little told aspect of the war and Philippe Esvelin seeks, in this colorful book, to set the record straight and give due testimony to the courage of the brave men, both the paratroopers and pilots, who gave their lives in the first hours of the beginning of the liberation of Europe. It is a unique photographic record of their efforts.
