9780340962527: Sky Men: Outnumbered. Under Fire. Expect the Unexpected.

Seventy years ago the army's elite air assault force, the Parachute Regiment was formed, tough and well-trained, designed to fight hazardous operations behind enemy lines, with little or no backup.
These are the 'Sky Men'. Dropping into the middle of enemy territory, these British, American, German and Russian soldiers engage in gruelling combat in the most dangerous conflict zones around the world.
Robert Kershaw, an ex-Parachute Regiment officer, reveals the history of these airborne forces, and their role during the most dramatic battles of the twentieth century. He finds out what makes them tick, what drives a 'Sky Man' to take these extraordinary risks, and what marks these sky warriors out from ordinary soldiers.
Based on exclusive interviews with soldiers from around the world, as well as letters and diaries, Sky Men is full of vivid personalities and nail-biting action.
