COMING SOON: DZ Europe: Story of 440th TCG reprint coming May 2014

Originally published in 1946, DZ Europe is the regimental history of the 440th Troop Carrier Group which served in the European Theater of Operations in World War II. The 440th TCG was comprised of the 95th, 96th, 97th and 98th Troop Carrier Groups and airdropped paratroopers and equipment into France and Germany in 1945 in their C-47 Skytrain transport aircraft and also provided towing service for gliders during the same campaigns.

Antietam Creek Press is honored to make DZ Europe available to the general public to help honor those who served their country in the troop carrier community.

UPDATE (July 2017): We have had problems with the scans needed to reprint this book since we first announced this three years ago...
