82nd Airborne at Operation Husky

In 1943 the Allies made their first mass use of Airborne troops in support of the landings on Sicily. By this time the Germans had already ruled out any further mass use of the airborne Fallschirmjäger after Crete, though a huge success the price paid was costly.

Angus is joined by Lieutenant Colonel Joe Buccino of the 82nd Airborne, to discuss how those initial landings went.

Joe is a currently serving officer and can be heard on the excellent All American Legacy Podcast.
