Description

“You have a rendezvous with destiny!” – promised Major Gen William Lee to his men as the 101st Airborne Division was activated at Camp Claiborne, Louisiana, 15 August 1942. And the first place they kept that rendezvous was Normandy…

At precisely 23.00 hours on the night of 5 June 1944, aircraft containing the men of Easy Company, 506th Parachute Regiment, 101st Airborne Division, thundered down the runway at Upottery Airfield. Lifting off into the night, the hazardous mission given to the paratroopers of the 101st was to spearhead the Allied invasion of Hitler’s occupied Europe – a rendezvous with destiny if ever there was one.

In the grueling days that followed D-Day, the men of Easy Company fought their way through dense hedgerows, across fields and orchards, through farms and villages towards their next objective – the strategic town of Carentan. Heavily defended by German forces, its seizure was vital to the Allied advance.

Chris Collingwood is quite simply one of the foremost Military artists in the industry. This superb release is nothing short of outstanding and he has perfectly captured the atmosphere and tension of the battle scene.

Anything relating to Easy Company – The Band of Brothers – is always hugely popular and this very special edition is personally signed by veterans of the unit creating a lasting tribute to the men of Easy Company.

Published in tribute to the paratroopers of the 101st Airborne Division who spearheaded the D-Day invasion in June 1944, five distinguished Easy Company veterans who fought with this courageous outfit in World War II have personally hand-signed each print, giving a special credence to this remarkable edition.
