Paratrooper! also addresses the formation and missions of Marine parachutists as well as glider-borne troops. In addition to the more well known combat jumps of Sicily, Normandy, Holland and the Rhine, the author reveals the facts about the lesser known airborne failures in North Africa as well as the disasterous drop on Avellino, Italy. Lesser known airborne operations in the Pacific are also discussed in detail.
At over 600 pages, this fully indexed and footnoted work has an extensive, impressive bibliography and was heavily used in the research for my historical novel. Read this book if you are a fan of the airborne!
