David Kenyon Webster

David Kenyon Webster (1922-1961) was an aspiring writer who left Harvard to join the paratroops in World War II. After the war ended, he wrote about his experience as a paratrooper in Parachute Infantry. The manuscript for this book and the letters he sent home during the war were used as source material for Stephen E. Ambrose's book Band of Brothers. In addition to Parachute Infantry, Webster is the author of Myth and Maneater: The Story of the Shark.
