Item description for Silent Warrior: A Photo Journal Account of a WWII Combat Glider Pilot by J. Curtis Goldman...
Overview This book relives the harrowing and little known experiences of a small group of fearless daredevils, who flew terrified American soldiers in what were known as flying coffins, into open fields, behind enemy lines in the midst of raging battles. Walter Kronkite would write that the most terrifying experience of his life was when he rode a glider into Holland in September, 1944. The G on their wings, representing Guts, would become a symbol of their heroism in some of the greatest battles fought during the war which included D-Day, Market Garden, and Operation Varsity. The purpose of this book is to honor these brave heroes.
