“THE GLORY AND SHAME OF WAR, VIVIDLY PORTRAYED IN A BOOK THAT IS ‘ONE OF THE VERY BEST’”—F. Van Wyck Mason

Suicide Squad

Ross Carter was one of three men who survived the suicide stands of his platoon of paratroopers. They had a three-way destiny—to be wounded, killed, or captured. But bound together by deep comradeship and extraordinary daring, the twelve men in his unit set incredible records of heroism.

Here are the unvarnished stories of ordinary men faced with the reality of death at any moment. They beef, get drunk, quarrel violently, take their women where they find them, and yet achieve an epic grandeur in their deeds.

“Every level of society had its representation among us. Senators’ sons rubbed shoulders with ex-cowboys. Steel workers chummed up with tough guys from city slums. Farm boys, millionaires’ spoiled brats, white-collar men, factory workers, ex-convicts, jailbirds, and hoboes joined for the thrill and adventure of parachute jumping. And so the army’s largest collection of adventurous men congregated in the parachute troops.”

From their first jumps in Africa through the Battle of the Bulge, this is their story—a story filled with breathtaking suspense and inspiring gallantry.
