Kurzbeschreibung

The final volume of Gardner’s critically acclaimed biography of the Third Battalion 506 Parachute Infantry Regiment – the sister company to the famed Band of Brothers – this book traces the battalion’s actions in the frantic final days of the war in Europe. Exhausted and battered following the disastrous Market-Garden campaign, the 506th were due three months of R&R, but were rushed back in to halt the desperate German attack during the Battle of the Bulge. When the offensive was finally halted after months of fighting the 506th pushed on into Germany where Ed Shames was the first Allied soldier to enter Dachau before the unit were sent to occupy Hitler’s mountain retreat at Berchtesgarden. Based on extensive interviews and first-hand accounts, this volume relives the struggles of the paratroopers of the renowned ‘Screaming Eagles’ in some of the toughest fighting of World War II, bringing the story of their defiant unit to its conclusion.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Best Book Yet Written on the 101st Airborne in Bastogne 30. Dezember 2014
Von Kevin Pearson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
So, you watched the HBO mini-series Band of Brothers and think you know about the 101st Airborne in Bastogne in December of 1944. WRONG! While the mini series did justice to many aspects of the battle, Ian Gardner (along with several other contributors) has written a book that will provide you with detail on the battle rarely before seen or known. This intensely detailed account of the battles for Foy, Noville and Recogne will go down as one of the best books ever written about Wacht am Rhine. The sacrifice by those living and dead is so greatly portrayed in a totally uncensored format. I was particularly haunted by the story of two troopers who were out on OP when one trooper's leg became so cold and hurt so badly as he lay watching for German activity, he had to give himself a shot of morphine! I was also struck by how random death was on the battlefield, more so by this book than any other. This will become one of the great books on World War II, and be compared to some of the greats like E. B. Sledge's book With The Old Breed or Bert Stiles' Serenade to the Big Bird. If you have an interest in World War II history, especially the history of the 101st Airborne during the Battle of the Bulge, you must read this book.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Another fantastic book by Ian Gardner... 8. Januar 2015
Von Ian Thompson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
The third book of the trilogy by Ian Gardner in which he details the actions of 3/506 from Bastogne through to the end of WW2. As with the previous 2 books, this is another well detailed and researched history that any follower of the 101st AB, or any fighting force, will love. The passion for the 3rd Battalion is so very evident in Ian's books and it was a pleasure to read it. I would recommend this, or any of Ian's books.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Great Read 28. Dezember 2014
Von Jason Fontella - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
I know the story well, but Ian Gardner makes the tale of Christmas 1944 and after thrilling and compelling. There were several times I found myself worrying over a trooper before remembering that this is history, and not fiction.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Lots of answers 23. März 2015
Von LD - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
If you loved Band of Brothers and want more specifics, where units were, what happened to the adjacent groups not shown in the series, or you are trying to locate where your relative fought in Bastogne, you’ll probably find it in this exhausting documentary.

I haven't found these details in other books:
Team Cherry at Longvilly caused the Germans to delay their attack on Bastogne and changed the outcome.
A black artillery regiment kept the Germans pinned down 14 miles away.
Maps show the local's houses so you can follow where civilians and military took refuge

Other reviewers got burned out on all the details but that is what a documentary should do- tell you anything you want to know and then more. I found the personal stories of how the locals managed to survive to be almost as fascinating as the unexpected contacts between American and German soldiers. The volumes of stories that individual soldiers told of their experiences give you a perspective much different from Battle of the Bulge books that are filled with statistics as if the whoever has more wins- not true.

The narrative exposes the truth that arbitrary decisions can mean the difference between surviving and being killed. Similarly, the battle can be won or lost.

The book does not claim that Patton’s force saved the 101st but it came at a crucial time just like the clearing of the skies.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Battle writing and research at its very best. 27. Januar 2015
Von M. Ismert - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
This is an award worthy book that carefully researches the men, families and places involved in the winter 1944 Nazi offensive in Belgium. I believe it will be used for generations to come who won't have the benefit of interviewing living participants and will have to rely on the careful research and clear writing of Mr. Gardner. The maps and pictures in this book are clear, readable and fantastic and much praise should be given to Mr. Gardner and his contributors to publishing this excellent book. Mr. Gardner's research goes beyond military records and military veterans, but he has also connected with the children and teenagers who were on the margin of the Battle of the Bulge; the eye-witness testimony of these non-combatants but still survivors of this historic clash add tremendous value to the written record of the winter of 1944/45.
