Don Jakeway enlisted in the U.S. Army at the age of 18 in October 1942, the same year that he graduated from high school. Don volunteered for the paratroopers and after initial training at Camp Tocca, he was sent to Camp Blanding where the 508th had been activated. After jump training at Ft. Benning, he and the rest of the 508th were sent to Europe where they jumped into history.
A great book, filled with vignettes of his comrades. It's easy to read and with many photos (all B/W).
