Screaming Eagles of WWII books


Piet Pulles ("Pete" to his American friends) was the original author of the series of books "Screaming Eagles of WWII" and the separate book "Honored Dead of WWII".
It took more than 20 years for him to collect the basic information on all participants of one of the American Army paratrooper units: the 101st Airborne Division.

Over the years, the booklets became a well-known reference within the Airborne world. After his death in 1997, the Screaming Eagles of WWII Foundation, holding the
copyright on the books, kept the series available on a non-profit basis.

The books, divided per unit, contain all 101st Airborne troopers who participated in WWII. Information consists of name, rank, unit, home state, date killed in action, date missing in action, date wounded in action and any additional information like killed in plane crash, grenade, place of burial. Never complete, they are the most used and most accurate reference material to any researcher of the 101st Airborne Division in World War Two.

The series consisted of 6 books:
Screaming Eagles of WWII - 101 HQ + Supp. Units
Screaming Eagles of WWII - Artillery
Screaming Eagles of WWII - 327 - 401 GIR
Screaming Eagles of WWII - 501 PIR
Screaming Eagles of WWII - 502 PIR
Screaming Eagles of WWII - 506 PIR
