Table of Contents

In the early morning hours of D-Day, 2,004 paratroopers of the 507th Parachute Infantry Regiment jumped into Normandy as a part of the famous 82nd Airborne Division. After a widely scattered drop, the regiment then struggled in the marshes and hedgerows of the Cotentin Peninsula in battles at places with names like Chef-du-Pont, Cauquigny, La Fiere and Graignes. During the regiment's time in Normandy, the hardships were many and the casualties were high. Out of the 2,004 men that jumped on June 6th, only 700 returned to England thirty-five days later. Down To Earth tells the story of those thirty-five days. Drawing on extensive oral history interviews with veterans of the regiment, Down To Earth focuses on the experiences of those who fought for the 507th during its baptism of fire. Complimenting the text, Down To Earth also features over 400 World War II era black and white images, as well as over 100 color photographs of U.S. airborne uniforms, insignia and equipment.
