THE ORIGINAL BAND OF BROTHERS - THE MEN OF
EASY COMPANY 101ST AIRBORNE
World War II Paratrooper Helmet Signed by Easy Company Veterans & Commemorative Box
Crossing the enemy occupied French Coast in complete darkness, under heavy AA fire, the 101st and other Airborne Divisions parachuted into Normandy, close to the village of St. Mére Eglise. Their historic drop launched one of the first actions of the greatest military invasion in history, spearheading the massed landings of Allied forces that heralded the beginning of the end of the Third Reich.
Easy Company went on to distinguish themselves throughout the European Campaign : In September 1944 they jumped into Holland, liberating the town of Eindhoven; they fought at the Battle of the Bulge. and in their final mission captured Hitler's famous hideout, the " Eagle's Nest ", at Berchtesgaden.
This highly detailed and carefully researched drawing was specially commissioned by the Military Gallery, working in close liason with James Dietz, one of America's foremost artists. This highly retricted print edition was issued with a genuine US military issue combat helmet, complete with interior fittings, from which was created a museum qaulity collectors piece in Easy Company markings.
Each Helmet was beautifully displayed in a specially created presentation box. Commemorating the men and gallant deeds of the 101st, the edition size was limited to just 101 sets world wide. Both the prints and combat helmets were personally hand-signed by TWELVE original Easy Company veterans, creating a unique and highly desired colletors item.
