British paratroops played a significant role in the Second World War, not just on D-Day and at Arnhem but earlier in North Africa and the Mediterranean. First published in 1945, this official account gives an important contemporary perspective on how events unfolded and were initially understood. Including eyewitness reports from combatants, the book covers all the airborne missions of the war as well as the training and preparation of parachutists and glider crew.
