First Edition. quarto, black boards in pictorial dust jacket. (192)pp. Arms and Armour, Item #23468
Profusely illustrated with photographs. With numerous maps. The daring and skill of the highly trained men who spearheaded the German assaults in the blitzkrieg of 1940 proved to an alarmed world a new dimension had opened in the science of warfare. They dropped from the air, seizing and overwhelming key invasion points--most spectacularly during the invasion of Crete in 1941. Through interviews with many of the leading members of the Fallschirmjaeger units and formations that survived the war, a well-known military historian offers a fascinating and dramatic account of these elite forces. A very fine copy of this classic. Jacket not clipped.
