Descripción

FAMOUS REGIMENTS SERIES - History of the British Parachute Regiment, Harrisburg, 1971, Stackpole, FIRST US EDITION, hard bound in dust jacket, 6 x 9, 308 pp, illus. VG/VG condition, ( very minor dj edge wear ). . . From Bruneval to North Africa, from Normandy to Suez, by parachute and glider the men of the Airborne Forces have gone by air to battle. But their activities have by no . means been confined to purely airborne operations - the Special Air Service performed prodigies of valour behind the German Lines in the Western Desert and Italy; the Glider Pilot Regiment fought beside their infantry comrades in Normandy, at Arnhem and across the Rhine. Their post-war successors, maintaining these traditions, have stood between Jew and Arab in Palestine; fought and sweltered in the jungles of Malaya and Borneo; sweated in the Persian Gulf and the Radfan; choked on the summer dust of Cypriot roads; tasted the grit and sand of Egypt and Jordan in their mess tins; spent more than a decade facing terrorist ambush, bombs and bullets in Northern Ireland.With well over 80 photographs and illustrations this book is a comprehensive single-volume history of the Airborne Forces. Accounts are given of the airborne actions fought by the British Army, whilst the development of the parachute assault and the use of glider-borne troops can be hollowed from their infancy to the massive coup de main technique employed in the Rhine Crossing.
