In mid-1943 James Megellas, known as “Maggie” to his fellow
paratroopers, joined the 82d Airborne Division, his new “home” for the
duration. His first taste of combat was in the rugged mountains outside Naples.
Megellas was the most decorated officer of the 82d Airborne
Division and saw more action during the war than most. Yet All the Way to Berlin is more than just Maggie’s World War II
memoir. Throughout his narrative, he skillfully interweaves stories of the
other paratroopers of H Company, 504th Parachute Infantry Regiment. The result
is a remarkable account of men at war.
