Currahee! | [Donald R. Burgett]

Currahee!

In June 1944, the Allies launched a massive amphibious invasion against Nazi-held France. But under the cover of darkness, a new breed of fighting man leapt from airplanes through a bullet-stitched, tracer-lit sky to go behind German lines. These were the Screaming Eagles of the newly formed 101st Airborne Division.

Publisher's Summary

In June 1944, the Allies launched a massive amphibious invasion against Nazi-held France. But under the cover of darkness, a new breed of fighting man leapt from airplanes through a bullet-stitched, tracer-lit sky to go behind German lines. These were the Screaming Eagles of the newly formed 101st Airborne Division. Their job was to strike terror into the Nazi defenders, delay reinforcements, and kill any enemy soldiers they met. In the next seven days, the men of the 101st fought some of the most ferocious close-quarter combat in all of World War II.

Now Donald R. Burgett looks back at the nonstop, nightmarish fighting across body-strewn fields, over enemy-held hedgerows, through blown-out towns and devastated forests. This harrowing you-are-there chronicle captures a baptism by fire of a young Private Burgett, his comrades, and a new air-mobile fighting force that would become a legend of war.

    "WWII in a nutshell.."

    Currahee is a good quick WWII action packed book. It does not measure up to Burgett's other book "Seven Roads to Hell" but is entertaining. Burgett goes from swearing in to being wounded in an hour and 41 minutes.

    "Currahee!"
    Would you try another book from Donald R. Burgett and/or David Guion?

    Basically the same World War ll book. I have heard the same stories told in other books, but still interesting.
