    Great pictures! Some of those are real classics.

    This is the only footage of the actual landing:

      Cool! Believe it, or not, I hadn’t seen that footage before. Thanks for posting it.

    Reminds me of the “Then and Now” books by Jean Paul Pallud . I have the “Battle Of The Bulge” book and apart from being brilliant it weighs a ton.

      I’ll have to look for that-sounds intriguing!

        I think there is a magazine as well ?

        I’ve got the book in my Amazon wishlist, now. It’s not inexpensive, but the reviews are outstanding.
