US Airborne Soldier vs German Soldier
Sicily, Normandy, and Operation Market Garden, 1943-44144
The US Airborne force fielded some of the toughest, best-trained and most resourceful troops of World War II - all necessary qualities in a force that was lightly armed and which would in most operational circumstances be surrounded from the moment it landed on the battlefield. The German Wehrmacht grew to rely on a series of defensive measures to combat the airborne threat, including fortifications, localized reserves, and special training to help intercept and disrupt airborne troops both in the air and on the ground. Despite such methods it was cool-headed command and control that would prove to be the real key to blunting the Airborne's edge. Using specially commissioned artwork, this book examines the development of the American airborne forces that spearheaded the Allied effort in Sicily, Normandy and Operation Market Garden, and the German countermeasures that evolved in response to the threat of Allied airborne landings.

Recensioner i media
"Modelers should find a lot of inspiration for modeling these subjects, as well as diorama ideas. Historians of WWII should also be pleased with the book. The excellent text is detailed including several first-hand accounts. It is enhanced with excellent photographs and illustrations." - KitMaker Network "This book gives a terrific overview in a fairly small space, and does so with excellent pictures and art that help capture these moments in time." - IPMS/USA
