The WWII Paratrooper Project
US paratroopers (who could be with the 101st if you go on the one guy’s helmet marker) with a German Shepard puppy, sometime before Market-Garden
Shortly after 10AM on Sunday, 17 September 1944, from airfields all over southern England the greatest armada of troop-carrying aircraft ever assembled for a single operation took to the air. In this, the 263rd week of World War II, the Supreme Allied Commander, General Dwight David Eisenhower, unleashed Market-Garden, one of the most daring and imaginative operations of the war.
