Mark Bando's newest hardcover book, left, is a reprinting of his first two books 'The 101st Airborne At Normandy' and 'The 101st Airborne From Holland to Hitler's Eagle's Nest'. Both books went out of print several years ago. This book features about seven new maps which were not in the original works, plus about 40 new vintage photos, which did not appear in his original books. In addition to selected stories from Mark's interviews with over 900 WW2 survivors of the WW2 101st, the book contains literally hundreds of vintage photos, most of which are not available elsewhere.
Right, Mark Bando's other most recent hardcover book , about the 101st Airborne during WWII. There are also some great B&W shots made from the original negatives of the 506th photographer, fabulous in detail, which are also unknown to the public.

Mark Bando's contribution to the 2nd Armored division and
the break-out into France, of which the "HELL ON WHEELS"
division took an active roll in, losing tanks and men at every
bend in the road and village and town along it's way !
Mark has been labeled a 'borderline Revisionist' by others
for some of his written accounts! Read more on
TRIGGER TIME.
As with his other books, Mark tells it like it was, from the men
who were there, and from the research he has done!!
An exceptional book!! Controversial by some!!
