The compelling true story
of one of the elite parachute regiments of WWII.
The 508th was the first parachute infantry regiment
to undergo selection and basic training as a unit and it carried its
distinction of uniqueness throughout the war. It was only fitting
that the regiment was selected to act as the Honor Guard for General
Dwight D. Eisenhower at SHAEF Headquarters in Frankfurt, Germany.
This book describes all the events, often in the words
of those who were there, and is a remarkably easy to read history of
the regiment and its personnel.
