Review

Historian Robert Kershaw uses interviews, diaries and letters to give a unique insight into day-to-day life during the conflict . . . a moving testimony (Daily Mail on Never Surrender)

A highly original and valuable piece of military history. It ought to transform our idea of the Second World War, it has mine...a marvellous and origninal book based on the most detailed research. (Sir John Keegan on Tank Men)

A triumph ... a really fine piece of work (Richard Holmes on Tank Men)

Very well written, with excellent photographs, it's an indispensable addition to the body of knowledge about modern warfare. (South Wales Argus on Tank Men)

Book Description

Very interesting account of parachute operations the world over, although concentrating on the formative WW2 years of the service. All the big stories are within; the bloodbath of Crete, the sacrifice at Arnhem and the success of the Rhine crossing. To this day I still wonder as to how the Germans managed to emerge victorious at Crete, as it was an operation that came so close to bloody failure. Mr Kershaw also looks at smaller, less dramatic operations, such as Entebbe and actions in Angola.
As ever this is a sympathetic account of men who fall from the skies to fight and die, with his respect for these men of steel shining through. If you have never read one of Kershaw's books then this is a good place to start, as it is written in a very readable style.
I must comment, however, on the terrible cover, as it makes the reader think it is going to be yet another SAS masturbatory fest! It is nothing of the sort and I can only imagine the publishers insisted on it to tap into such a market. In my opinion Kershaw is above and beyond such cheap and tacky attempts at publicity.

Well worth reading,worth a place in history of World War II. I found it difficult to follow the section on German paratroopers. Impressive.
