Whiting's book Operation Northwind, which was reprinted as The Other Battle of the Bulge: Operation Northwind, discusses the "second Battle of the Bulge," an act of aggression initiated by Hitler in France during December, 1944, with the goal of reclaiming Alsace-Lorraine. The battle resulted in the loss of more than 15,000 American troops and more than 30,000 French soldiers.

In his story, the 101st was often in first when nearly impossible-or at least profoundly unfamiliar-military challenges faced the nation's civilian masters. The book's style is uneven, perhaps owing to the reality of multiple contributors that is revealed only by small-font attribution at the beginning of each chapter and in the appreciation that constitutes the volume's concluding pages. The first chapter, 'World War II', provides the volume's finest narrative. It is striking to be reminded how late in the conflict the 101st was created and brought to bear upon Europe's darkest moment.

American Eagles : The 101st Airborne Assault on Fortress Europe 1944/45. by Charles Henry Whiting.

'AMERICAN EAGLES' is the thrilling, true story of the US 101st Airborne Division. From their rigorous training in 'Old Jolly' (England) to their first operational jump in Normandy, Whiting tells the story of this 'Band of Brothers', who fought, suffered and died in the eleven month campaign that followed. From Normandy through Holland, Bastogne, French Alsace till their final date with destiny at Hitler's Eagle's Nest in the Bavarian Alps, we gain a picture of a brave elite division 'warts and all'. Drawing on his own youthful experiences when his regiment was under the command of 101st Airborne in Holland, through painstaking research on the site of each of the 101st's battles, plus survivors stories, Whiting, perhaps Britain's most renowned popular WWII military historian, provides an ideal companion for the viewers of Steven Spielberg's celebrated $100 million TV series 'Band of Brothers'.
