War Paint narrates a historical account of the
band of miscreants during WWII that inspired the fictional Dirty
Dozen. This book introduces the reader to the men of the legendary
Filthy Thirteen who boarded the C47 for the jump into Normandy on
D-Day, follows them out the door and through their harrowing combat
experience on the ground. No other books studies what happened to a
single jump stick in Normandy. Nearly half were killed, wounded or
captured. The remainder fought through Holland and half of the
survivors ended up as pathfinders that jumped into Bastogne to save
their encircled 101st Airborne Division. Unlike the previously
published personal accounts of Jake McNiece and Jack Wormer, this
book integrates the accounts of all the members of this demolition
section in the 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment - the same regiment
of the Band of Brothers. 150 photos and 10 maps.
