Overview
-

This book containing more than 200 photographs and many testimonials will take you back to the heart of the furious battles by the American paratroopers to liberate and hold Sainte-Mère-Église and surroundings. He will introduce you to the extraordinary history of creation of the American airborne weapon and the epic of troopers and gliders of the 82nd Airborne from Sicily to the heart of Germany via Normandy and the Netherlands. The authors also review the moving history of the village in the aftermath of the war. The presence of two large provisional cemeteries in the territory of the municipality for three years and the recognition of the population towards its liberators allowed to forge very strong bonds of friendship between the inhabitants and the All Americans.
