CARENTAN - Linking Omaha Beach / Utah Beach, Part I
CARENTAN, Linking Omaha Beach - Utah Beach, Part I
The first in a series of five books about the 101st Airborne Division in Normandy comprising over 3,000 pages and 4,000 photographs, this initial volume concentrates on events immediately preceding D-Day. Organized by Regiment of the 101st Airborne, after 30 years of investigative research most of the photos that appear in the volume have been identified, for the very first time. A combination of three prestigious collections, this book of airborne images is undoubtedly now the most impressive ensemble published anywhere in the world. American historian Mark Bando, along with the two founders of the D-Day Paratroopers Historical Center, Emmanuel Allain and Michel De Trez joined forces to merge their knowledge and collections. Bando began to collect photographic and oral histories long before it became fashionable. His expertise and knowledge, collected over the years, directly from the veterans while their memories were still fresh and intact. Never before has the epic liberation of Carentan and linking of the invasion beaches by the 101st Airborne been covered with such attention to detail.
