Very descriptive and exciting. Well-written, but you slipped from past tense to present tense without warning readers.
By "the youngest general" I guess you mean James Gavin - Jumpin' Jim. I heard many good things about him.
By the way, Custer was a Lt. Colonel when he died at Little Big Horn. He had been a brevet (temporary) Major General in the Civil War.
A good book about the 82nd Airborne is "Those Devils in Baggy Pants." That was a name the Germans gave them in tribute to their fighting ability, as they called U.S. Marines in WWI "Devil Dogs." The book is probably out of print, but you might find it on Amazon.
Did you steal the "Hail Marys" from Robert Redford in "A Bridge Too Far?"
WWII, like the Wild West, has receded so far into the past as to become the subject of fanciful writing, even legend and myth. ("The Dirty Dozen" was a good example of sheer fantasy.) No harm in that. But I hope you'll continue doing research to make the details of your stories as accurate as possible.
Keep up the good work

It was a really great read. I think you've outdone yourself with this one. Well done.
Best of Luck,
