I got a comment on my article about wartime magazines with paratroopers on the cover. This one is post-war (1962), but has a very colorful cover and features an article about Jumpin’ Jim Gavin, or the much decorated general of the 82nd Airborne Division.
Having read Michael Booth’s biography of Gavin “Paratrooper: The Life of General James M. Gavin” of 2013, this article is sure to contain some exciting highlights of his early career.
Did you know Gavin served as Kennedy’s ambassador to France?
