June 6, 1944, above occupied France. With steely eyes, the Band of Brothers paratroopers of the 101st Airborne lunge toward their rendezvous with destiny. Many carry a letter from Gen. Eisenhower that they keep tucked under helmets, in jump boots, and in bulging jacket pockets, close to heart.
It read: “Soldiers, Sailors, and Airmen of the Allied Expeditionary Force! You are about to embark upon the Great Crusade, toward which we have striven these many months. The eyes of the world are upon you.” At the door of each C-47, with chaos a step away, the troopers knew: “Tonight is the Night of Nights.”
