Currahee!: A Paratrooper's Account of the Normandy Invasion
Currahee!: A Paratrooper's Account of the Normandy Invasion
von Donald Burgett
  Gebundene Ausgabe

5.0 von 5 Sternen Currahee!: A historical treasure., 30. Oktober 1999
I read Currahee! for the first time as a teenager in the early 1970s then a second time just after touring Normandy in 1975. It was then and remains to this day a historical treasure. The book motivated me to go on to become a paratrooper (now a master parachutist.) Nearly a quarter of a century later I'm serving as a U.S. Diplomat and Special Forces Reserve Lieutenant Colonel. Now living in Europe, I visit the 101st's battlefields often and try to pass on the lessons of history to my children. I like to think that guys like me are carrying on in the spirit of Burgett and his band of brothers to whom mankind owes a debt of gratitude.
