From the cover: “This lavishly illustrated book documents one of the Western worlds most illustrious fighting units the U.S. Army’s ‘Screaming Eagles’, known more formally as the 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault). The unit history traces The 101st Airborne Divisions lineage back to the 101st Division, formed in 1918 as part of the mobilization for World War I. The 101st saw action through World War II and the theatres of Normandy, Rhineland, Ardennes-Alsace and Central Europe. In Vietnam, Operation ‘Eagle Thrust’ was the largest and longest military airlift ever attempted. Throughout the Tet Offensive the 101st was engaged in combat operations from Saigon in the south to Quang Tri in the north. This action was followed by numerous operations including ‘Nevada Eagle’, ‘Apache Snow’, ‘Hamburger Hill’ and ‘Lam Son’.”
