New York Times review: “For sheer adventure few writers of fiction surpass this real-life, name-and-date story of men bound together in a combat outfit.”

“The 101st Airborne Division, which was activated on August 16, 1942, at Camp Claiborne, Louisiana, has no history, but it has a rendezvous with destiny…” Maj.-Gen. William Lee commanding officer 1942.

Rendezvous with Destiny: A History of the 101st Airborne Division, is unique among military histories. Never before has such a detailed study been made of the organization, training and operations of a single division of the United States Army. Each action in which the Division took part has been minutely studied and checked against available operations reports and the memories of the men who were there. From the beaches of Normandy to Hitler’s Berchtesgaden hideaway the 101st Airborne fought their way across Nazi-Occupied Europe to Victory.
