Editorial Reviews

Review

This book will open the floodgates of pleasant nostalgia, and should prove as enjoyable for any airborne trooper as it is for me. It is evocative for the old, instructive for the new, and in its ideal eye-catching coffee table format may even prompt a question, thereby leading to a revelation. Without any attempt at comparison with previous Airborne books (so far I know none in this style, or done with such historical accuracy), this book for me is the best literary and pictorial effort dealing with any of the well known commanders in WWII" -- Anonymous reviewer

About the Author

Jerry Autry retired from the military in 1994 after twenty nine years. His Vietnam service included the original parachute battalion of the 101st Airborne Division of which General Lee established. Awarded nine different medals for valor, plus two purple hearts, he has been called the Army's most decorated chaplain from Vietnam. His passion is working with and publishing works of Vietnam veterans. Pesently, he is the pastor of the Congregational Church of Rio Vista, CA., a charming little town in the heart of California's Delta.

After reading the book, General Lee, Father of the Airborne, I was struck by the significance of the relationship between General Lee and his wife and the role she played in his career. The book is a wonderful collection of photographs coupled with the history of General Lee's contribution to the war and the Army. As a military wife, I have a great love for the Army and the Airborne as my husband served both with the 82nd and 101st. I think anyone interested in military history will want this book. It is chronicles a most significant period.

what a wonder picturesque review and accurate reflection of a marvelous leader and unsung hero. many pieces of history relative to the airborne and what transpired during the airborne drops in WWII are told in the coffee table masterpiece. The wonderful story of duty love and honor are played out with southern style and grace. I would love to see this on the big screen soon. Ft Bragg and Army Posts throughout would be honored. A great and wonderful story. thanks.

Whether you're among the proud elite who have earned the coveted "silver wings" of the Army Airborne or you're a serious history buff, General Lee is certainly on the top twenty of books I have read on modern warfare.
