5.0 out of 5 stars Highly Recommended!, 8 Nov. 2010
This review is from: Hitler's Paratrooper: The Life and Battles of Rudolf Witzig (Hardcover)
This is a meticulously researched biography of Rudolf Witzig, a well-known and highly decorated member of Germany's parachute forces: the Fallschirmjäger.

In this book Colonel Villahermosa presents Witzig's entire life story from his childhood and pre-war training to his battles during the Second World War and post-war service in the Federal German Army.

Using interviews both with surviving wartime comrades of Witzig and his family, as well as unpublished material written by Witzig himself, the author has produced a comprehensive and well written narrative of his subject's eventful life. It is sure to appeal to everyone with an interest in the history of the Fallschirmjäger in particular and airborne forces in general.

Although I favour the use of original (in this case, German) rank, unit names and military terminology etc. in works of serious military history such as this; this is only a personal preference and should not be seen as a criticism of a excellent book which would grace any Second World War military history enthusiast's bookshelf.

Highly recommended.

This review is from: Hitler's Paratrooper: The Life and Battles of Rudolf Witzig (Hardcover)
I bought this for my husband as part of his Christmas stocking as he loves all things war and enjoys Paratropper books. A very good read which he has shared with his friends!
