Brothers in Arms, The Longest Night
June 6, 1944, 2:10 am . . . From the darkened heavens, C-47s of 9th Troop Carrier Command deliver the paratroopers of the 82nd and 101st Airborne Divisions into the hellfire of Normandy’s drop zones. The Screaming Eagles, already on the ground for an hour, link up with the All American troopers near French towns like Ste. Mere Eglise. Together, they will fight in small, ad-hoc bands, sowing chaos behind the German lines. To survive the longest night of D-Day, they would become: Brothers in Arms.
Limited edition print signed by artist Matt Hall and 4 D-Day Veterans including Don Jakeway, who is featured in print, the paratrooper hanging from the tree on the left.
