Osprey Warrior 38 : Fallschirmjäger : German Paratrooper 1935-1945

Few of the combatants of World War II have captured the imagination as compulsively as the Fallschirmjäger. Boldness and courage were vital characteristics in the rigorous selection process, and their training was highly demanding. Hitler's airborne troops were involved in some of the most daring actions of the whole war; from the 1940 assault on Eben Emael and the invasion of Crete in 1941, to the rescue of Mussolini and the attempt on Tito's life. In addition, they saw service as elite line infantry in the key theatres of North West Europe, North Africa and the Eastern Front. This book looks at the life and experiences of the average Fallschirmjäger, and includes first-hand accounts from different theatres and periods of the war. Text by Bruce Quarrie with illustrations by Velimir Vuksic.
