Summary
This is the gripping story of 3rd Battalion, 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment (PIR) from its activation to its combat during D-Day and the Normandy campaign. The 506th PIR, the "Currahees," was attached to the 101st Airborne Division, took part in D-Day landings, and suffered many immediate casualities. The astounding tale of how the surviving paratroopers fought on towards their objectives against horrendous odds is told in their own words, aided by the stories of the French civilians who witnessed the campaign
