Trevor, Good to see someone interested in the 511th. My grandfather was in B 511 PIR and jumped into Los Banos. I have my grandfather's original uniform, cap and medals (including silver star). Plus his letters and memoirs (not looking to sell).
I saw that you have interviewed lots of the men from the 11th ABN, as have I. In fact, I met Gen. Flanagen when I was a Lieutenant in the 82nd ABN (fun fact). Bottomline, I am working on a book concerning B Co 511th that is definitely different than Holm's book which is really about D Co and his Grandpa, plus lots of stuff borrowed from Flanagan's book (as most of the records were burned in the 1970s, we are really at a lose without him). Love to see what research others have done and try to get more detail into the fighting, plus share whatever I have gathered.
