Charles Plaudo

Charles Plaudo was a member of the Filthy Thirteen, a group of men assigned to the 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment (PIR) of the 101st Airborne Division in World War II. The Filthy Thirteen was to jump into Normandy on June 6th ahead of other d-day invasion units and perform sabotage by destroying bridges thus preventing the Germans from reinforcing their defenses on the beaches.

Charles Plaudo and the rest of the Thirteen are easily distinguishable from other 101st Pathfinders not just because of their mission but because they shaved their heads into a Mohawk style and painted their faces as Indian warriors. They were also assigned to regimental headquarters and not a pathfinder company.

Watch the men in England on June 5th as they check their equipment and prepare to load up into their C-47 plane for the cross channel flight and parachute drop in our DVD, the Invasion of Normandy. See other men of the 101st Airborne prepare for D-Day as well as many scenes after landing in France in this raw combat film footage taken by the US Army Signal Corps Photographic Section. See Charles Plaudo in this unique footage; this is military history on film!
