PARATROOPS by Major F.C. Miksche


Email this review


Not intended for civilian consumption, except, perhaps, for that growing market of fireside strategists, who are intensely interested in the technical aspects of modern war. For this is definitely a technical book, dealing not with the adventurous or romantic aspects of air borne troops, but-- briefly -- with the historical background, through the Battle of Crete, and more extensively with tactics, composition, cooperation with ground forces and air forces, varieties of use, etc. Potential stressed for future in war and peace.
