[EAN: 9780850598070], Jacket, Sparkford 1991, Patrick Stephens, UK 1st edition, hard bound in dust jacket, , Fine/Fine condition, 6 1/2 x 9 1/2, 216 pp, illus, appendices, bibliog, index.-----------------------------------------The very word 'paratrooper' brings to mind daredevil courage. During the Second World War both sides used these crack bands of airmobile soldiers whose particular z punch lies in shock and speed, backed up with rigorous training. From the German invasion of Denmark and Norway in 1940 to the American deployment of an airborne division half a century later in the Gulf war, Airborne Assault shows how paratroops have played a major part in capturing key objectives during the assault stage of dozens of military operations. But who are these men? How are they recruited, what is their real track record, and just how necessary are they today, when so many of their functions can be taken over by airmobile troops in helicopters? The author allows readers to make up their own minds. A noted war historian, he has produced a global reference source that is reliable, unbiased, and always readable. He tells of tragedies as well as triumphs, sifting the myths and weighing the arguments.-----------------------------------------------------------------There are accounts of every major airborne assault world-wide, and most minor operations. Also provided are details of paratroop history, the organisation and composition of all airborne units, training methods, and principal types of parachute, glider and transport aircraft. The book, which includes first-hand accounts of a number of missions, is illustrated with many rare contemporary photographs. Even the cynic will gain some insight into why the paratrooper's Wings are worn with such pride., [PU: Great Western Railway]
