ON THE NAZI PARATROOPER! ABOUT 200 PHOTOS!

This sought after 9 x 12-1/4 inches hardcover book has about 250 pages with about 200 photographs shot by German war correspondents. It was published 1942 by Luftwaffe General Student, right after the German victory over the British forces on the island Crete, an island between Europe and North Africa. Many of the photos are huge full page photos an dsome are even double page photos! The book was intended to honor the brave men who jumped out of the air right into the British defense lines and cleared the way for the regular Wehrmacht troops and mountain troops! Many of the German Fallschirmjäger lost their lives, most of them are buried on the German war cemetery of Maleme, the little town on Crete where the German paratrooper attacked first in 1941.

The book is in very good condition, it is definitely one of the best original Third Reich reference guides for anyone interested in Third Reich para-trooper history and will be an asset for anyones collection!

many of the excellent photographs are close-ups of Fallschirmjäger uniforms, weapons and equipment which were in many cases different from what the regular Wehrmacht used!
