Deutsche Fallschirmjäger im Zweiten Weltkrieg - Buch
The deposing of an army from the air was a novelty in the history of war. Names like Eben Emael, Rotterdam, Norway, Crete, El Alamein, Tunis, Sicily, Normandy, Brittany, and not to forget Monte Cassino, the use of the "Brandenburg" paratroopers in Yugoslavia or the Battle of the Bulge are with the history of the German paratroopers closely connected. In the scorching heat of Africa, German paratroopers were in action as well as in the ice desert of Russia. In words and pictures, Volkmar Kühn tells the story of the German parachute troop from its beginnings in 1935 until the end of the Second World War in 1945. This work testifies to the sacrificial course of this elite force based on military diaries of the associations, diaries of their leaders and hundreds of reports of paratroopers of all Ranks - from the paratrooper to the commander-in-chief of the German parachute troop. The chapters reflect the often decisive actions of brave officers, noncommissioned officers and men. Gripping battle reports and over 370 photos and location maps make this work a standard work about the German parachute troop.
