DZ Europe: The Story of the 440th Troup Carrier Group is Now Available
The 440th Troop Carrier Group History Project is pleased to announce that the original and rare 1946 history of the 440th Troop Carrier Group is being published in its 2nd edition. The original format has been retained as well as the cover in the new, 204 page, soft bound edition.
DZ EUROPE gives the reader an inside look at one of the most decorated and respected Troop Carrier units in the ETO. From training to combat missions to life around the bases the book is packed with information, hundreds of photos, maps, facts and WWII cartooning that was unique to the era. Fly with the 440th into battle at Normandy, Southern France, Holland, Bastogne and the epic Crossing of the Rhine.
The purpose of the 440th Troop Carrier Group History Project is to use 100% of the profit from sales of the new edition to fund sending copies to military and public libraries and archives free of charge. We want to make the proud history of the 440th available in libraries across the country so America may know and never forget the honored service of the members of the 440th Troop Carrier Group during WWII. Each copy donated will have a special presentation label noting the presentation of the book by the members of the 440th Troop Carrier Group to the recipient library or archive.
