Robert Bowen found himself unexpectedly assigned to the 401st Glider Infantry Regiment, shortly after joining the US Army. His service with the 101st begins with intensive training in North Carolina, where he forges friendships with fellow company members and prepares for combat in Europe. Transported to Britain, Bowen witnesses first-hand the devastation in the cities and is bemused by the wartime strictures of his new environment. As training continues, the division sense that something important awaits them, and that -- as prophesied by one of the men -- 'Uncle Sam needs something for his money'. Shortly after, they receive their brief on Operation Overlord.
