Hells's Highway: The True Story of the 101st Airborne Division During Operation

On September 17, 1944 in broad daylight, the Allies launched the largest airborne operation ever conducted. It was hoped that this audacious offensive would end the war by Christmas 1944 and that the retreating and demoralized Germans would be easily brushed aside. The mission assigned to the Screaming Eagles of the 101st Airborne Division was to seize the key bridges along the base of this attack and then secure critical areas along the highway that led north to the Rhine. But nothing in war is easy. The Germans recovered quickly and fought back brilliantly. The Screaming Eagles experienced some of the most savage combat in the division's history. This compelling narrative of the 101st Airborne Division's day-to-day battle for the stretch of road immortalized as hell's Highway features specially commissioned full-color maps and is filled with rare archival photographs. Also included are color photos of contemporary reenactors that provide authentic detail of uniforms, equipment and weapons. World War II veteran interviews and actual unit battle reports and journals vividly paint the course of the fighting and dramatically relate the desperate battles in the canal-divided lowlands of Holland.
