Publisher Description

In December 1944, Hitler launched a desperate massive counterstrike at the Allies, with thirty-eight German divisions slamming through American lines. Then the 101st Airborne was thrown into the fight. Fresh from seventy-two brutal days of combat in Holland, with little food and ammunition, the Screaming Eagles struck back-and stunned the German forces. Then the real battle for the town of Bastogne-and its seven key roads-began...

This powerful, action-packed memoir puts us in the middle of the legendary fighting force known as the Screaming Eagles. Along the way, Donald R. Burgett, just nineteen years old at the time of the battle, vividly captures some of the most horrific action of World War II. From point-blank tank assaults to hand-to-hand combat, Private Burgett and his cold, hungry, and wounded fellow paratroopers stood against an overwhelming enemy force-and won the battle that secured victory for the Allies in World War II.

Greatest Book on Combat Ever

This book surpasses everything that I've ever read.

Good Book too Short

Not exactly War & Peace, this book suffers from being too short by the time you start to enjoy it, it's over. Good descriptions of battle and atmosphere but not long enough to connect emotionally with the characters.
