9781909384569: The German Fallschirmtruppe 1936-41: Its Genesis and Employment in the First Campaigns of the Wehrmacht

The Fallschirmtruppe of the Wehrmacht won recognition for their valor and endurance not only from their fellow German soldiers, but from their former enemies as well. On the basis of careful and comprehensive research, including utilizing extensive unpublished documentary and personal materials, the author covers the history of the Fallschirmtruppe from its genesis and early training to its employment in combat in Scandinavia, the Albert Canal in Belgium, Holland, the Greek mainland and, of course, at Crete.

The reasons for the remarkable successes of the German Fallschirmtruppe during this period are analyzed, as are also the conceptual weaknesses inherent in its formation and the faults in the command and control during its combat employment.

The author, himself a former Bundeswehr Fallschirmjäger and General Staff officer, has also utilized accounts from those who fought the Fallschirmtruppe, and has thus been able to correct many errors perpetuated in previous books on this subject, besides providing more complete coverage.

The text is supplemented by approximately 100 b/w photos and more than 25 detailed color maps.

This is a remarkably detailed study, firmly based on documentary sources, and is destined to become one of the definitive works on its subject in the English language. This revised edition has been prepared exactly according to the author's instructions.

REVIEWS

This is a scholarly, high quality book and a great addition to what currently exists in print
WW2 Connection
...an excellent job of explaining the development and use of the Fallschirmtruppe from the mid-1930s through to the early years of the war. A first class read and very informative, with a level of detail that I found enlightening.
Miltary Modelling
“Overall this is a very valuable account of the campaigns of the Fallschirmtruppe that takes a impressively balanced approach to their combat missions, acknowledging the failures of planning that often saw them suffer heavier than expected casualties while almost always achieving their objectives.” History of War

About the Author:

Karl-Heinz Golla, born in 1939, joined the Fallschirmjäger of the Bundeswehr in 1958. After completion of officer training, he served as a platoon leader and company commander and then passed the General Staff course. He undertook several assignments as a General Staff officer in the fields of operations, war planning and doctrine in senior national and NATO commands. In between he was also a commander of an armored infantry battalion. He retired in 1994 with the rank of colonel. Since then he has authored several military history books, including Zwischen Reggio und Cassino: Das Kriegsgeschehen in Italien im zweiten Halbjahr 1943 (2004) and Der Fall Griechenlands 1941 (2007).

Review:

"The text effortlessly incorporates the political situation at each respective period, be it at a diplomatic level or the internal dealings between Luftwaffe and Army commanders. And throughout, the manner in which the parachute and glider tasks fitted into the overall plan of operations is cleverly woven into the text ... This is a scholarly, high quality book and a great addition to what currently exists in print." WW2Connection.com
