As one of the last surviving members of the Band of Brothers, Ed Shames wanted to commit his memories of the Second World War to paper to preserve the legacy of the men who served with him in Europe. Airborne is his dramatic wartime biography, a riveting tale of fierce combat, doggedly determined drive for survival and astounding bravery. Parachuting into Normandy on D-Day with 3rd Battalion, 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment of the 101st Airborne Division, Shames was involved in some of the most pivotal moments of the Allied invasion, advancing through the bocage of France, and after his transfer to Easy Company in Holland, battled the elements and the ferocious German counterattack at Bastogne during the Battle of the Bulge, liberating Nazi concentration camps and helping to capture Hitler's Eagle's Nest. Startling honest and raw, Airborne is the compelling combat biography of a man whose forthright opinions and gruff manner often put him in conflict with his fellow officers, but who was respected by the soldiers he commanded, because he was determined to bring as many of them home alive as he could.
