The book is interesting and often ignore subject as to the history of Airborne troops in World War II. It delves into great detail of the development, service, full history from the formation to the Airborne units and battles with text and a great many photographs.

The book's chapters are:

  • Conception
  • Blitzkrieg
  • Crete: The Turning Point
  • The Allies
  • German Operations after Crete
  • Airborne Operations in the CBI and Pacific Theaters
  • Russian Airborne Operations
  • Paratroopers as Elite Ground Forces
  • Cancelled Operations

The book covers most of the Airborne operations and units for all sides on WWII. The photographs are great and cover a lot of areas and campaigns of the war.

I found this book so informative and was full of facts and details I was never aware of.

The book is full of amazing photos of the men, machines and battles of the various forces through the history or WWII. These would be great as reference for any modeler or historian.

I was amazed at the amount of information and history found in the pages of this extremely enjoyable book. The pictures along are worth the cost of the book. I will find this book indispensable in my library.

I recommend this book to everyone with an interest in military aircraft.

Thanks go to Casemate Publishing for providing this book to review and IPMS USA for allowing me to review it for them
