I am very interested in the subjects of paratroops
of any nation, as I have served in a Parachute Regiment myself.
I snatched this review copy up as soon

"German Airborne Divisions Blitzkreig 1940-41" by Bruce
Quarrie is valuable as it covers not only battle history and uniforms but also
full unit breakdowns, from training to tactics.
The book comprises 96 pages and eight chapters, with
photos, maps and diagrams throughout.
Specific topics covered are:
There is also a comprehensive four-page Glossary.
Osprey's "German Airborne Divisions Blitzkreig 1940-41" is
a very good book that I would recommend to all who are interested in the history
of the Wehrmacht in WWII, or Parachute regiments in general.
