Описание: This new book tells the complete story of the famous 82nd Airborne Division from its formation in 1917, through its legendary World War II campaigns (Sicily, Normandy and Holland), Vietnam, Grenada, Nicaragua, Operation Desert Storm to the present, and examines the many changes from a World War I infantry division to the rapid deployment organization it is today. The 82nd helped develop the concepts of airborne warfare during World War II. After the war the 82nd continued to develop airborne techniques and trained to provide the United States with a strategic deployment force. Since World War II, the Division has been called upon to assist in domestic and foreign disturbances. Since World War I the Division has gone through many changes, but it still bears its World War I nickname: the "All American."

Описание: Trained in the use of the Eureka radar, holophan lights, and colored ground panels, the pathfinders dropped thirty minutes before the main airborne landing to provide ground guidance for successive airborne jumps. The concept of the pathfinders proved successful and they were used during the remainder of World War II. The story of the airborne pathfinders and the vital part they played in airborne operations during the Second World War has rarely been told. In this new book, Jeff Moran tells the story of the operations they led, the equipment used much of it unique to the pathfinders and has memorialized them by noting, in many cases, the individual teams of pathfinders.
