Reviews - What do customers think about 507TH PARACHUTE INFANTRY REGIMENT: Normandie, Ardennes, Allemagne - A Forgotten Regiment?

507th Parachute Infantry Regiment  Oct 6, 2003
Just spent the weekend with the surviving members of the 507th. INCREDIBLE bunch of guys. Actually got to meet Dominique Fracois and another gentleman named Martin Morgan who has put together a documentary of the 507th called "D-Day: Down to Earth-Return of the 507th". You can check it out at You guys should really check this book out if you get a chance, and keep an eye out for the documentary.
Great book  Nov 22, 2002
The 507th doesn't get written about as much as the other airborne regiments of WWII. That is because the 507th received so many casualties during the Normandy campaign. I have been looking for a history or a book about the 507th. When I first flipped through the pages of the book I was very impressed. It was informative and had many photographs of the men and the paratroops during the war. However, I could not give it five stars because of one troubling error. I was looking at the picture of F Company trying to find my grandfather. Upon closer inspection I found that the same picture was used for both D and F Company photographs. It's not a huge error, but it is significant to me because the one picture I wanted to look at was missing.
Overall though, it is a great book and offers a good look into the lives of the 507th PIR during World War II.
