It´s fifteen minutes past midnight on June 6, 1944. A C-47 Dakota is humming over the skies of Nazi-occupied France. Perched at the aircraft´s open door is Captain Frank Lillyman, paratrooper pathfinder. His job? Light the way for the largest invasion in history. The aircraft jump light turns green and Lillyman leaps into the blackness over Normandy. From other invasion-stripped Dakotas, six thousand other paratroopers follow. You just witnessed the first combat mission of the 101st Airborne Division, "The Screaming Eagles."
Follow them through their dangerous stateside training sessions to the tension-filled moment of truth, D-Day, when the smallest mistake could have cost the Allies´ victory. From that triumphant instant on, The Screaming eagles become the "go to Guys" in American warfare, playing key roles in World War II and Vietnam, where they are the last combat unit to leave that country.
Relive the do-or-die missions, the unflinching heroism and the personal stories behind this glorious fighting force. Featured are dramatic interviews with members of the 101st and rare footage from the Troopers´ own film archives. It´s an action-packed salute to the men who took to the skies in the name of freedom.
