CARENTAN - Linking Omaha Beach / Utah Beach, Part III
CARENTAN, Linking Omaha Beach - Utah Beach, Part III.
This book retraces in pictures the epic of the 101st Airborne Division in its first combat jump in History. This third volume of a series of six books totaling more than 3,000 pages and 4,000 photos is dedicated to the first hours of D-Day on Bloody Drop Zone, DZ D -- Saint-Côme-du-Mont.
Organized by location of the 101st Airborne's battlefields, most of the photos are identified. In itself, this constitutes information that was not available until now. More than thirty years of research and investigation have been necessary to identify them.
This book is the combination of three collections of original vintage photographs and is without a doubt the most impressive collection in the world. Mark Bando, an American historian of the 101st Airborne, and Emmanuel Allain and Michel De Trez, the founders of the D-Day Experience Museum, pooled their knowledge and collections to create this book. Mark Bando began collecting this history when most of us were not born.
