In any country's army the paratrooper is the elite - tough, hand-picked, highly trained and a formidable fighter. They arrive as shock troops, usually outnumbered and relying on skill and raw guts to win through.

Using extensive rare combat footage, dramatic re-constructions and exclusive interviews, AIRBORNE! is a detailed and dramatic account of the world's elite airborne units in action - their history, tactics and weaponry.

Although small scale paratrooper attacks were attempted during the Great War, it was during World War Two that airborne forces first proved what they were really capable of. Elite German units took part in the invasion of Norway and the Blitzkrieg, often winning against overwhelming odds. They inspired Churchill to establish a British paratrooper force - and Allied airborne forces were to play an increasingly important role, especially during the liberation of Europe.

At war's end, airborne units were thought obsolete, but they soon proved their worth in conflicts the world over. British paratroopers fought in Palestine, Egypt, Aden, Cyprus, the Falklands and the Gulf. Elite French airborne units fought in Indo-China and Zaire, while America pioneered new helicopter-borne assault tactics in Vietnam.

Today, wherever war breaks out, it will be airborne forces who spearhead any assault. They remain the warrior elite.

The old fashioned ways of paying are a bit more of a hassle for you but mean I can offer this item for the lowest price I possibly can. Card payments are very expensive so I prefer the old fashioned methods of payment. And let's face it, the good old fashioned cheque - well nothing is more secure than that.
