Book, 82nd Airborne Division : 1917-2005


The 82nd Airborne Division has had some of the most prestigious soldiers in the US Army in its ranks. The history of this glorious division was forged by thousands of anonymous paratroopers who were always ready to jump into extreme situations and accomplish their objective on the ground, whatever the conditions.

From the trenches of the Somme (First World War) to the Iraqi Desert (Second Iraqi War), from the snowy forests of the Belgian Ardennes to the jungles of Vietnam, the paratroopers of the 82nd Airborne Division have accomplished their mission, without ever failing in their duty. They have been the spearhead of the U.S. Army for almost 90 years.

This memorial album features almost a thousand photos, most of them previously unpublished, from private archives and the division's own archives.
