Reader's opinion :

"Thank you for your wonderful book. It arrived yesterday, and I thought I would spend a few minutes looking at it. You can guess that I couldn’t put it down until I had read all of it. There were all of the handsome young men I used to see, before the 505 went overseas. They were laughing and full of mischief. But then, as it happens in war, they were forged in the heat and hammering of Sicily and Italy. England reminded them of how life used to be, and they were young and resilient. They were all so young – even my dad. Those young men were, and always will be, my heroes." Barbara Gavin

"Readers of Michel de Trez's books know that they are in for an absolute treat with this new book. Impeccably researched and fabulously illustrated, this latest massive book on our American Airborne forces is packed with an enormous amount of material on the operations, the soldiers, their uniforms and equipment. Michel de Trez has unique access to veteran's archives as well as being a meticulous researcher. It is unlikely there will ever be another book on Sainte Mere Eglise which is so well researched and presented." General Jack Norton, USA ret, 505 PIR.

"Your Ste. Mere Eglise book arrived today and it is just excellent. Of course I would have been surprised had it been otherwise. Much bigger volume than I was expecting and of course love all the photos and especially the ones of the bits in your collection. It has to be just too awesome!" Terry Webb, USA
