Can't think of the author, but the "Currahee!" book and the author's follow up (can't remember nothin these days) on fighting in Germany (he did not jump into Holland) are great Airborne books. So too is a chapter in "Six Flags Over Normandy"-John Keegan. Keegan's is a study and not a bio.
Another study with a bunch of personal accounts and suprising number of pics is "The 101st Airborne at Normandy"-Mark Bando. My copy is sort of oversize/soft cover and I was surprised at how much I enjoyed it as a read.
