This “HISTORY of the 101st Airborne Division” was the authorized publication of the 101st Airborne Division. It was published for the benefit of new replacements coming into the Division.
“…And where is the prince who could so afford to cover
his country with troops for it’s defense as that 10,000
men descending from the clouds might not in many places
do an infinite deal of mischief before a force could be
brought together to repel them.”
This pamphlet is designed to be issued to all newly assigned personnel. It chronicles briefly, the Division’s accomplishments from its activation to August 1. 1968 This pamphlet should instill into each individual replacement the Esprit de Corps that exists in all Screaming Eagles.
