The Filthy Thirteen: From the Dustbowl to Hitler’s Eagle’s Nest—The True Story of the 101st Airborne’s Most Legendary Squad of Combat Paratroopers by Richard Killblane (Author), Jake McNiece (Author) was an entertaining and interesting read. Jake McNiece (the leader of the Filthy Thirteen), is a wonderful story teller. The movie, “The Dirty Dozen” is very loosely based on the Filthy Thirteen but Jake makes it clear that none of his group were criminals, just screwups and incredible combat troopers!
