Opis produktu:

The exploits of the 3rd Battalion, 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment (PIR) have been long overshadowed by those of Easy Company, 2nd Battalion. Yet the actions of the 3rd Battalion during the D-Day landings were every bit as incredible and this is the astounding story of how, after suffering many immediate casualties on landing, the surviving paratroopers fought on towards their objectives against horrendous odds. Using fascinating first-hand accounts of the soldiers and the French civilians who witnessed the Normandy campaign, and illustrated with black and white photographs and maps throughout, the authors offer a unique, comprehensive account of the experiences of the 3rd battalion from training through to D-Day and beyond.

Ian Gardner served for five years in Support Company,10th Battalion the Parachute Regiment as a medic, before leaving the Territorial Army in 1993 due to a parachuting injury. Ian has always loved military history but it was several years after leaving 10 Para that his interest in WWII US Paratroopers really began. Inspired after a visit to Normandy in 2000 he decided to focus on the 101st Airborne Division and in particular the 3rd Battalion of the 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment. Currently a self-employed graphic designer, this book is his first historical work co-written with Roger Day. He is married, has two teenage children and lives near Aldershot in Hampshire.

Roger Day’s family have lived in and around the village of Ramsbury, Wiltshire, for generations. During his childhood and early adult years he became very interested in the wartime history of the village and the surrounding area. In addition to co-authoring Tonight We Die As Men with Ian Gardner, Roger has previously written Ramsbury at War (1999) and a history of the World War II ammunition depot that was located in Savernake Forest, Wiltshire.
