Ex paratrooper John Weeks’ exciting eBook is a dramatic history of airborne troops and their most famous actions: Crete, Arnhem, D-Day, the Vietnam War and beyond.

Airborne raids caught popular imagination early in the Second World War, when the elite German forces carried out deadly operations deep behind enemy lines. Able to seize and hold objectives before the enemy has time to react, paratrooper assaults were seen as fast, dynamic and potentially devastating. However, they are also unpredictable. Requiring complete surprise, tactical flexibility and a lot of luck to succeed, a daring airborne raid can soon turn into a disaster, as the Allies discovered in Operation Market Garden.

Studying the evolution of airborne forces over one of the bloodiest eras in world history, Assault from the Sky looks at the planners, the generals, aircraft, gliders, weapons and the men who created a revolution in modern warfare.
