Description
 

The Life of General James M. Gavin

World War II, which occurred precisely at the juncture between air transport capability and the invention of the helicopter, saw history’s first and only mass use of paratroopers dropped into battle from the sky, perhaps the most courageous combat task seen in modern warfare. And "Jumpin' Jim" Gavin was by all accounts America’s best paratrooper leader.

“…offers a remarkable portrait of one of America’s greatest field commanders. It analyzes his unique leadership, unveils his stormy private life (including affairs with actress Marlene Dietrich and correspondent Martha Gellhorn) and explores the revolutionary advances in warfare spearheaded by his beloved 82nd Airborne.” World War II Magazine (World War II Magazine)

[Hardcover, 496 pages, T. Michael Booth (Author), Duncan Spencer (Author)]
