Linking Omaha Beach – Utah Beach
Organized by regiment of the 101st Airborne Division, after 30 years of investigative research most of the photos appearing in this volume have been identified for the very first time.
A combination of three prestigious collections, this compilation of rare airborne images is undoubtedly the most impressive work published on this matter. American historian Mark Bando, along with 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 have been covered with such attention to detail.
