Mark Bando has dedicated this work to this famous American airborne division engaged in the Normandy and Ardennes battles. He relays in dramatic detail the histories recounted by hundreds of veterans, making this work a necessary addition to the enthusiast's library. Mark Bando is the well-known author of three previous books about the 101st Airborne Division in WWII and of Breakout at Normandy: The 2d Armored Division in the Land of the Dead. Expanding on his previous works, Vanguard of the Crusade is comprehensive, addressing the entire WWII record of the 101st. The author was born and raised on the west side of Detroit, MI, attended Cass Technical High School and later Wayne State University, as a history major. HE served 25 years as a uniformed Detroit Police patrol officer, working in five different precincts and spending six years in the citywide Tactical Section, during which he heard many shots fired in anger. Bando began interviewing WWII veterans of the 101st in 1968 and has continued to the present, with a running total of over 1,025 interviews. This lifelong pursuit grew out of a recognition of the superior battlefield performance of the WWII 101st and their resulting legendary historical status. His quest has been not only the record their exceptional experiences for posterity, but also ti study the combat paratroopers to discover the reasons for their great successes in battle. Uniquely, Bando has focused almost exclusively on the 101st for four decades, providing his books an abundance of rich, untold stories and a depth of detail which other researchers simply cannot match.

Twenty-four young Argentine soldiers who have deserted the army spend the last weeks of the conflict hiding out in a cave. Inside their refuge they listen to the radio, stock pile supplies and exchange stories; outside, under cover of night, they trade with the Argentine Quartermaster and with the British. Looking out over the bleak landscape, after weeks of grey skies and horizontal snow, one of them remarks that 'you'd have to be English to want this'. Catch-22 meets Dispatches in the Falkland Islands - Malvinas Requiem is a commentary on the utter futility of war. Darkly comic and deeply affecting, the book contributed to the defeat of the military junta in Argentina and, 25 years after its first publication, still continues to make waves.

The period 1941 - 1942 marked a decisive and unexpected turning point in the way the Nazis looked on the issue of "non-aryans" in their ranks. Following high losses in Russia, the need for replacement troops was very great. As a consequence, Bosnians, Arabs, Asians, Trans-Caucasians and Indian soldiers were all enlisted in the Wehrmacht and even in the Waffen-SS. More thank a million such men served. This large format book from Heimdal, illustrated with more than 300 photographs, badges, flags, maps, uniforms and other documents, tells the little known story of these troops. REVIEWS " very useful reference on a subject not well covered. The authors have done a great job in researching the topic, and it shows... If you are interested in some of the lesser known aspects of the Wehrmacht, this is a great book to have. " Internet Modeler, 10/07 "... cover the subject with a knowledge and completeness military historians as well as collectors of military memorabilia will find uniquely informative and satisfying. Collectors of militaria will appreciate especially the photographs of unit patches and related insignias and the ones of fezes and other ethnic garb which became a part of the uniforms of the foreign soldiers...." Henry Berry, book reviewer 11/07 "...there is much information to be gleaned ... from the many wartime photos and color artwork depicting dress, headgear, weapons, rank and unit insignia, medals and decorations, and banners. Those interested in the more exotic military units of the Wehrmacht and SS will find much of interest in this book." Military Trader/ Military Vehicles, March 2008
