The 101st Airborne Division, nicknamed "The Screaming Eagles", are seen several times in the game. Historically, they land a few hours behind the assault force on D-Day and were one of the two US airborne combat units in D-Day, the other being the 82nd Airborne Division.


They are first seen holed up in a town in Normandy not far from Sheridan's HQ. He quickly gathers up some units and makes contact with the men. They help lead the defense of the HQ and eventually help capture the strategic towns of Valognes and Cherbourg.

They are next seen attacking Eindhoven and and several other areas and linking up with the Irish Guards, and are under the command of Sheridan. They also help lead the attack on several other towns including Nijmegen and rescuing the British trapped at Arnhem along with XXX corps.

They are last seen under General Sheridan's command leading the defence of Bastogne and eventual counter-attack of the Germans, thus capturing Von Richter's HQ.
