Veterans of WWII's largest airborne assault and deadly drops into the Southeast Asian jungle help tell the story of the famed fighters of the 101st Airborne.

They took part in the largest airborne assault of WWII. They have fought in the jungles of Vietnam and the rugged terrain of the Balkans. They are the soldiers of the U.S. Army's 101st Airborne division--better known as The Screaming Eagles.

Go behind the lines and through the pages of military history with the 101st in this fascinating film. Filled with recollections from Screaming Eagles veterans, it is a comprehensive chronicle of the men, battles and commanders that have made the division into one of the most celebrated forces in the annals of the U.S. military. Go along on the night jumps behind Omaha Beach that paved the way for the Allied breakout at D-Day and relive the Battle of the Bulge, where Eagles commander Anthony McAuliff refused surrender. Follow the division's transformation from parachutes to helicopters during Vietnam, and examine their roles in more recent conflicts like the Gulf War.

Filled with combat footage and gripping interviews with the men who have fought for this fabled force, this is THE TRUE STORY OF THE SCREAMING EAGLES.
