    This is the first book dedicated to the 139th Engineer Battalion of the 17th Airborne ! It is really a huge source of information for military history enthusiasts, 17th Airborne's friends or relatives. The author (and friend) Ozzie GORBITZ has doing a great job of research with this book with a lot of fantastic photos. A real opportunity to learn more about the history of this battalion.

    This is another great book dedicated to the 17thAirborne Division during Op. Varsity, for the first time available in English!  With exclusive permission my friend Jos Bex did a great job translating the 17thAirborne part of the original German book  “Die Luftlandung” , written by  author and historian Johan Nitrowski, into English.
    The book really is an interesting source of information for both military and history enthusiasts. This translation gives the perspective during  Op. Varsity as seen from the American paratroopers and glider men as well as from the German defenders and civilians, added with unique “Then and Now” pictures and personal stories recently written by 17thAirborne veterans.
     

    A real opportunity to learn more about the history of the 17thAirborne Division during the largest single day airborne operation during World War II.
