HISTORY OF THE 101st AIRBORNE DIVISION SCREAMING EAGLES: THE FIRST 50 YEARS. The elite division's battle history in WWII, Vietnam and Desert Storm from Airborne to Air Mobile to Air Assault.
HISTORY OF THE 101st AIRBORNE DIVISION. The History of the 101st Airborne Division is the epic story of the Division from its activation in August 1942 through the completion of Operation Desert Storm in April 1991. In that time, the Division's progression through the sky had been simple: from Airborne to Air Mobile to Air Assault, an evolution that took decades of hard work and tens of thousands of dedicated soldiers.
In every engagement and during the training periods in between, the 101st Airborne Division has honored the words of its first commander, General William C. Lee, that it has a "rendezvous with destiny." This book is a fitting record of that history, and of the men who are proud to be called, "Screaming Eagles."
