1 Review
The historical record of the development and use of airborne forces has hitherto been blurred by neglect, secrecy and misinformation. This book uncovers the truth and sets the record straight.
Using newly released and formerly classified Soviet archival sources and German sources never before seen in the West, the work provides a comprehensive and detailed account of the performance of Soviet airborne forces in peace and war.
