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
