Volunteering for the new airborne forces in 1941 did not guarantee entry - the selection process eliminated all but the fittest and most resilient soldiers. The men who made it were therefore an elite band with a supreme esprit de corps. This book collects first-hand accounts from Paras who fought in the Second World War, recalling their experiences from the brutal training to action in the Mediterranean, Normandy, Arnhem and the Rhine.
