Overview
September 17, 1944. Thousands of Screaming Eagles-101st Airborne Division paratroopers-descend from the sky over Holland, dropping deep behind German lines in a daring daylight mission to seize and secure the road leading north to Arnhem and the Rhine. Their success would allow the Allied army to advance swiftly into Germany. The Screaming Eagles accomplish their initial objectives within hours, but keeping their sections of -Hell's Highway- open takes another seventy-two days of fierce round-the-clock fighting against crack German troops and tank divisions.
Drawing on interviews with more than six hundred paratroopers, George E. Koskimaki chronicles, with vivid firsthand accounts, the dramatic, never-before-told story of the Screaming Eagles' valiant struggle. Hell's Highway also tellsof the Dutch citizens and members of the underground who were liberated after five years of Nazi oppression and never forgot America's airborne heroes. This renowned force risked their lives for the freedom of a small country . . . and the world.
