During the blitzkrieg of 1940, they spearheaded the attack, dropping from the air to seize key points — and demonstrating that a new dimension had been added to the science of war. This book provides the first major account of these legendary soldiers, illustrated throughout with photographs collected from a wide range of sources. The author has researched deep into Allied and captured German archives, and has interviewed many of the leading members of the Fallschirmjaeger units and formations who survived the war.”
