Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0953867722, Hardcover)

'AMERICAN EAGLES' is the thrilling, true story of the US 101st Airborne Division. From their rigorous training in 'Old Jolly' (England) to their first operational jump in Normandy, Whiting tells the story of this 'Band of Brothers', who fought, suffered and died in the eleven month campaign that followed. From Normandy through Holland, Bastogne, French Alsace till their final date with destiny at Hitler's Eagle's Nest in the Bavarian Alps, we gain a picture of a brave elite division 'warts and all'. Drawing on his own youthful experiences when his regiment was under the command of 101st Airborne in Holland, through painstaking research on the site of each of the 101st's battles, plus survivors stories, Whiting, perhaps Britain's most renowned popular WWII military historian, provides an ideal companion for the viewers of Steven Spielberg's celebrated $100 million TV series 'Band of Brothers'.
