I'm a glider pilot and fascinated at how precisely the Glider Pilot Regiment was able to land the troops at the target. Especially considering what ungainly monsters these WWII gliders were. The stories here cover both sides of the battle and are standard Ambrose, humorous, poignant, interesting. He was a favorite historian. The Brits in combat are unequaled in their coolness under fire. They also tell great stories. A very good read.
