The 'Screaming Eagle' Division is an elite force and one which has passed into American military legend. Called upon time and time again to perform dangerous missions and show exceptional courage, the paratroopers of the 101st Airborne Division have fought themselves into the history books. From daring raids against German positions on D-Day, to the bitter fighting in the Ardennes-including the legendary stand at Bastogne-and campaigns in Vietnam and Kuwait, the Screaming Eagles have always distinguished themselves. Now, in this detailed photographic record, Christopher Anderson, drawing on images from private collections, presents an important study on fifty years of this formation's history. Christopher J. Anderson is the Senior Editor of MHQ: The Quarterly Journal of Military History. He has written many articles on military history, and is the author of The U.S. Army Today, Patton's Third Army, Hell on Wheels, and The Fall of Fortress Europe in the G.I. Series.
