I picked up Lions of Carentan, but I can't say I really recommend it. It didn't turn out to be quite what the title implied. Very little on the battle for Carentan. There is a bit more info on the unit's experience in Holland and some on Italy, but overall the book is pretty thin on detail.

Thank you both.

I'm interested in the early war, when they acted as real paratroopers. I have Beevor's Crete, which I loved, but I'd love to learn more about their other major operations during Case Yellow, or in Norway, for example.

M1A1TC, it's 'Jump into Hell' any good?

I agree 100%.
