Product: 1/72 WW2 - US Paratroopers
The 101st Airborne Division is the most famous paratroopers unit that served in World War II. It was nicknamed "screming eagle" because of the insignia (an eagle with an open beak) the soldiers carried on the shoulder. The 101st Airborne took part in the military operations of D-Day with many drops on strategical objectives behind enemy lines. The 101st Airborne also took part in Operation Market Garden and especially in the battle of the Ardennes, at the siege of Bastogne, where they strenuously resisted the last counterattack of the German troops.
