of a company of elite soldiers, then reenlisted and fought in both Korea and

About this book
'SILVER EAGLE', the official biography of “Band of Brothers” veteran Clancy Lyall, written by his friend Ronald Ooms. After the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor and seeing every young man leave town to join the army or the merchant marine, Clancy, who was only sixteen, didn't want to stay behind. He lied about his age and enlisted into the military.
He became part of the 101st Airborne and saw action in Europe where he jumped into Normandy during D-Day. After a narrow escape from death he was reassigned to Easy Company 506, the famous 'Band of Brothers'. He saw action during Operation Market Garden, confronted the freezing temperatures and brutal barrage by the enemy during the Battle of the Bulge, witnessed the horrors of the concentration camps in Nazi Germany and became the first allied soldier to step into Hitler's 'Eagles Nest' in Berchtesgaden.
At the end of World War II he re-enlisted and joined the 82nd Airborne where he was stationed near Frankfurt, Germany.
He made two more combat jumps in Korea, doubling his total of combat stars on his jump wings. And with that becoming one of the few to ever achieve that feat. In Indochina he became an adviser for the 29th French Parachute Division. This is his story told by the man himself.
