This is the final volume of Gardner's critically acclaimed biography of the Third Battalion 506 Parachute Infantry Regiment--the sister company to the famed Band of Brothers. Introduced by the renowned Ed Shames, this book traces the battalion's actions in the frantic final days of the war in Europe. Exhausted and battered following the disastrous Market-Garden campaign, the 506th were due three months of R&R, but were rushed back in to halt the desperate German attack during the Battle of the Bulge. When the offensive was finally halted after months of fighting, the 506th pushed on into Germany, where Ed Shames was the first Allied soldier to enter Dachau before the unit were sent to occupy Hitler's mountain retreat at Berchtesgarden. Based on extensive interviews and first-hand accounts, this volume relives the struggles of the paratroopers of the renowned "Screaming Eagles" in some of the toughest fighting of World War II, bringing the story of their defiant unit to its conclusion.
