ВОЕННАЯ ИСТОРИЯ British Paratrooper 1940-1945 (Osprey Warrior 174) . From these beginnings The Parachute Regiment became one of the foremost units of the British Army both in World War II and up to the present day. A wealth of first-hand and until now unpublished materials brings the history of the ordinary paratrooper to life, drawing on the authors position as a former curator of the Regimental Museum. Inspired by the exploits of the German Fallschirmjger in the blitzkrieg campaigns, Winston Churchill called for the formation of a 5,000-strong Airborne Force in June 1940. This new history of the British Paratrooper, from 1940 to 1945, details the unique training, weapons and equipment used by these elite troops.
