In his book, Between the Lines and Beyond: Letters of a 101st Airborne Paratrooper, Whidden reveals almost 300 letters written to his parents about his time in World War II. But unlike many other books about that era, it isn’t a war story. What started as a way to keep his mother from worrying turned into a detailed chronicle of Whidden’s coming-of-age, of sorts.

They were an elite group of 101st Airborne Division demolition/saboteur explosive experts. Jake must have been one of the luckiest soldiers in WWII. He made 4 combat jumps. When the 101st became encircled and besieged during the battle of the bulge they called on Jake and his pathfinders to drop into Bastogne, setup the radio beacons to guide the resupply aircraft over the target. This book was a tough read for me but given the fact that the main character was ill educated, had total hatred of authority, an alcoholic and thief I still thank the Lord for combat soldiers like him and the Filthy 13.

In World War II, the 101st became the first American troops to set foot in occupied France, when, on 6 June 1944, its paratroopers dropped behind enemy lines, clearing the way for the 4th Infantry Division landing on Utah Beach. In every engagement and during the training periods in between, the 101st Airborne Division has honored the words of its first commander, General William C. Lee, that it has a rendezvous with destiny. This book is a fitting record of that history, and of the men who are proud to be called Screaming Eagles.

Guy Whidden, II is a veteran 101st Airborne paratrooper. As the title suggests, Guy s censored letters often forced his family to 'read between the lines' to figure out the subtle messages he was sending. Through Guy s letters and narrative, we relive many of his experiences: Army training, the voyage to England, his historic jumps into Normandy on D-Day and into Holland during Operation Market Garden, and being seriously wounded by a German morter shell that killed three of his friends...nearly causing his own leg to be amputated. This book gives a realistic and yet light-hearted look at what Guy went through during that period of his life. But it does not stop there. Guy is still busy! An epilogue relates his activities since WWII including his re-jump into Normandy in 1994.

well written and moving story.

This book is an excellent window into the 1940s America and the military experience of the era. It is written, not from memories, but from actual letters from that time, and it reveals many aspects that we could not imagine, without reading this book. It is a literary time capsule, written by a humble, intelligent man, who has no other agenda, except to share his experiences.
