Le 16 août 1942, l' U.S. Army crée les premières divisions aéroportées, les 82e et 101e, qui allaient redéfinir les stratégies de guerre de la Seconde Guerre mondiale. Il y a 75 ans, les responsables militaires n’étaient pas si sûrs que la 101e, les "Screaming Eagles", nouerait avec le succès. Cependant, leurs opérations de combat occupèrent rapidement une place parmi les plus cruciales de l'Histoire des États-Unis – le Débarquement de Normandie et L’Opération Market-Garden. Le premier commandant de la 101e, le Major-Général William C. Lee, a déclaré que ses hommes n'avaient pas d'histoire, mais avaient un "Rendez-vous avec le Destin." Aujourd'hui, vous avez un rendez-vous avec l'Histoire. « Orange is the Color of the Day » qui retrace l'histoire en images de la 101e au cours de la libération de la Hollande contient dans ses 560 pages, plus de 850 photos.

Dans la même série : «D-Day Minus, 17 September 1944», l'histoire en images de la 101e en préparation de l'invasion de la Hollande. 208 pages, + de 300 photos sur les aérodromes en Angleterre avec le tout nouvel équipement adopté pour cette opération.

Edition limitée, disponibles en version anglaise uniquement.


COMMENTAIRES: “Les 2 livres que j'ai achetés vendredi sont vraiment magnifiques ! Encore un très grand merci pour les 2 pièces uniques qui sont ajoutées à ma collection.” Bob van der Auwera, Belgium

“I went to the remembrance at Heeswijk and it was very beautiful. It's good to remember those who fell for our freedom. I bought your books, and I just finished with watching all those photographs.  It's an awesome collection of rare and unseen photos. I want to thank you and Peter for the research and writing. Those book are of great value for the heritage of the war.  With my study cultural heritage I want to show the people what the price of our freedom was. I have met the veterans, so it was an amazing day. Thank you for signing the book and for writing it.” Tim Overduin, Nederland

“I want to congratulate the two of you with your fantastic book about the 101st AB Div. on the Market Garden operation. Look forward to the follow up on the 82nd and wish you succes with this one and the work on an 82nd AB book.” Hans den Brok, Netherlands, Troop Carrier Research

“I really enjoyed the meeting last Friday and especially the new books (read/watched most part of them this weekend). Well done, great work.” Antoine, Belgium

“Its a wonderfull book!!! The best ever!!!!!” Theo Hijmans, Holland

“I picked up a copy of both books from the authors at Heeswijk Castle yesterday and I have had difficult times putting them down in the past 24 hours... They are absolutely fantastic and well worth the wait! While some of the pictures have been published before and some are stills from WW2 US Army Signal Corps footage, the vast majority of the photos have never been shown to a large audience and do include a couple of huge surprises... For the first time in my long collecting career have I now seen a photos showing two Converto Dump Jeep trailers in use in the ETO.... And another photographic evidence of an RL35 Reelcart hooked behind a Jeep trailer... And so many more extra-ordinary pictures and details... Yes, these are expensive, but if you have an interest in the September 1944 Holland AB-Operations, these books are must haves...” Johan Willaert, Belgium

“I appreciate that and congratulate you and Peter Hendrixx on a magnificent addition to the preservation of US military history.” Phill Lockett, Auckland, New Zealand

"The research certainly sounds exhaustive. Congratulations on getting this monumental work done." Brian A. Williams, USA
