Descending from the Clouds: A Memoir of Combat in the 505 Parachute Infantry Regiment, 82d Airborne Division

'“A distinguished airborne combat leader in the 505 PIR, Spencer Wurst has given us an inspiring memoir about how, at the platoon level, we defeated the best of the Wehrmacht. You will never read a more authentic and riveting account of airborne and combat operations at the cutting edge of our Army in WWII. A must read book.” —Lt. Gen. John Norton, G-3, 82ABD, WWII   “Colonel Wurst (ret.) has written a straight-forward, no-frills account of his combat service. A rifleman with the 82d Airborne . . . he recounts in a subdued yet graphic narrative what he saw through three combat jumps into Italy, France, and Holland, followed by more intense combat in the Bulge and the Heurtgen Forest in Germany. . . . Wurst’s book ranks as one of the best war memoirs written by a World War II veteran. Highly recommended.” —starred review, Library Journal, December 2004'
