Item Description

The tale of two brothers who volunteered for the airborne, Donald Woodland in the 101st and Bernard T. Woodland in the 82nd, is relived through the memoirs of Donald, beginning with his enlistment in the army-which he had opportunity to avoid-and ending with his discharge as a private. The well-researched facts from this eyewitness account will impart an experience of World War II that no Hollywood drama can replicate, as Don on the one hand recounts the cold and death of Bastogne, and on the other hand, through cameos of personalities and rundowns of equipment training, leaves a trail of detail that engulfs the reader in the war. In this book, numbered among the last of the World War II memoirs, is one of the first visits to Hitler's Eagle's Nest. In addition to contributions from comrades in arms, To Serve with Honor publishes the letters Don received from his brother, who served alongside Ross Carter in Company C ("Baggy Pants"), 504th PIR, 82nd Airborne. The memoirs conclude with a surprise-the revelation of the first African American paratrooper in U.S. Army history.
