FROM THE FRYING PAN TO MITTERSILL – FOX COMPANY, 502ND PARACHUTE INFANTRY REGIMENT 1942-1945 – LTC Jos Groen MSc
During WWII, the paratroopers of Fox Company took part in three of the main campaigns in Western Europe: D-Day, Carentan, Market Garden, and the Battle of the Bulge. Their efforts and sacrifices ultimately helped crush the armed forces of Nazi Germany.
This book will give you an astonishing insight into the characters of these highly trained WWII paratroopers who fought so gallantly during this war. The historical narrative of Fox Company is based on numerous resources that have never been published before, which makes these stories and the company’s combat record unique. These are the untold stories of the men who saw the war up close and personal. Their accounts show the whole gamut of emotions a combat soldier experiences: from his fears, suffering, and the anxiety of engaging with the enemy, to the humor, comradeship in despair, and mutual bonds. The unique pictures that accompany the written words will leave a lasting impression on you.
The book contains hundreds of personal accounts and memories of the paratroopers, and over 200 pictures and maps. Many of these pictures are unique as they have never been published before.
