Sign Here for Sacrifice by Ian Gardner Sign Here for Sacrifice by Ian Gardner
New book from Osprey is hard-hitting history of a US airborne unit who made a name for themselves in the unforgiving jungles and rice paddies of Vietnam.

Winning battles, losing the war. Forging bonds of brotherhood, callously zipping up body bags in a morgue. The Vietnam War was a litany of countless contradictions. This is brought home with brutal honesty in this history of a legendary airborne unit reactivated at the height of the war. Drawing on interviews with veterans, Ian Gardner reveals how the 800-strong Third Battalion of the 506th Airborne was imbued with the same legendary “Currahee” spirit that had defined the volunteers of World War II.

Through countless interviews and rare personal photographs, Sign Here for Sacrifice shows the action, leadership, humour and bravery displayed by these airborne warriors in near impossible circumstances.
