Books by Jim T. Broumley

Little has been written about the gingerbread men in WWII. Now the 509th Parachute Infantry Battalion’s combat chronicle is available in one source. In “The Boldest Plan is the Best,” author Jim Broumley has skillfully crafted a narrative of the beginnings of American airborne and the first paratroopers to go into combat. The exploits of this “bastard battalion” are brought to life with the voices of the veterans themselves, seventy photographs, and seventeen original maps. Enough background on WWII is provided for the enjoyment of a general audience, but readers of military history will also relish this story of an often overlooked unit of elite American paratroopers.
