On 8th June 1944 elements of the 501st and 506th Parachute Infantry, along with the 1st Battalion, 401st Glider Infantry, engaged a German force in the town of St. C me-du-Mont. The 3d Battalion, 501st PIR, took positions south of the town, along the highway to Carentan where it encountered the enemy. The 1st Battalion, 401st Glider Infantry, was called to aid the 3d Battalion, but the enemy withdrew before the glider troops arrived. Both of the 101st battalions pursued the retreating enemy.

WBritain 1/30 US 101st Airbourne Glider Infantry Regiment Standing Firing 25009

W Britain Soldier of the US 101st Airbourne Glider Infantry Regiment Standing Firing

The 101st Airborne Division first saw combat during the Normandy invasion - 6 June 1944. The Screaming Eagles were to capture the causeway bridges that ran behind the beach between St. Martin-de-Varreville and Pouppeville. In the division's southern sector, it was to seize the la Barquette lock and destroy a highway bridge northwest of the town of Carentan and a railroad bridge further west. At the same time elements of the division were to establish two bridgeheads on the Douve River at le Port, northeast of Carentan.As the assault force approached the French coast, it encountered fog and antiaircraft fire, which forced some of the planes to break formation. Paratroopers from both the 82d and 101st Airborne Divisions missed their landing zones and were scattered over wide areas. For many the first struggle of combat was to find their units; 1500 soldiers from the division were killed or captured. When units or soldiers finally assembled, they had difficulty in identifying their locations relative to their objectives. The paratroopers of the 101st were promised reinforcements at dawn, when 51 of the division's gliders were scheduled to land. The gliders, however, had problems of their own. Many of the gliders crashed, and several soldiers of the division were killed, including Brig. Gen. Don F. Pratt, the assistant division commander. A second glider landing at dusk that day produced even more casualties.

WBritain 1/30 Osprey Art German Oberjager Fallschrimjager-Regiment 9 - 1 Piece In Window Box 25005

W Britain Osprey Art Series German Oberjager Fallschrim-jager Regiment

Fallschirm jager units made the first airborne invasion of Denmark on the 9th April 1940. In the early morning hours of Operation Weseribung they attacked and took control of Aalborg Air Base which played a key role acting as a refuel station for the Luftwaffe in the subsequent invasion of Norway. Other airborne attacks during the Battle of Denmark were also carried out, including one on a fort on the island of Masdeno. The first opposed airborne attacks occurred during the Norwegian Campaign first during the initial invasion when Fallschirmjagers captured the defended air base of Sola, near Stavanger. The Fallschirmjager also had their first defeat in Norway, when a company was dropped on the village and railroad junction of Dombas and was destroyed by the Norwegian Army in a five day battle.
