E Company, 506th Regiment, 101st Airborne From Normandy to Hitler's Eagle's Nest

By Stephen E. Ambrose. This history of the combat paratroopers of Easy Company follows the elite unit from their arduous training through their D-Day landing at Utah Beach, subsequent battles (Carenton, Operation Market Garden in Holland), their notorious encirclement at Bastogne in the Battle of the Bulge, their capture of Hitler's "Eagle's Nest" at Berchtesgaden, and drunken revelry in occupied Germany. Filled with quotes drawn from hours of interviews with surviving members of the unit as well as the soldiers' journals and letters, the book focuses on what military analysts call "unit cohesion," the revered bonds forged between soldiers in combat. Note: occasional barracks language. Grades 9 and up. Index. Maps. Touchstone. 333 pages. 2001 paperback edition.
