FREE shipping on qualifying offers. World War II Troop Type Parachutes was written for anyone interested in the history of airborne troops. On the down side the book's text is less complete for allies like Poland and France, neither of which had done much with airborne troops prior to the war. It is significantly scanty on Soviet gear, an oversight which is harder to accept given the large-scale exercises conducted by the USSR in the 1930s. Nevertheless, the book is at a minimum an excellent visual reference.

World War II Troop Type Parachutes was written for anyone interested in the history of airborne troops, and is profusely illustrated with unpublished period and contemporary photographs. Collectors, modelers and researchers will be able to identify all of the troop parachutes used by the Allied powers in World War II. Additionally, technical data, drawings and packing instructions are included for those who own or find a vintage parachute. The narrative describes the developmental history of the equipment and employment technique. Incidentals such as aircraft, tactical use, uniforms and even insignia are discussed if they alter or refute what has previously been accepted as fact. Also available is a companion volume that covers the World War II Axis countries: Germany, Japan, and Italy. The chapters in each volume are arranged in the approximate chronological order of development.
This book is a true jewel in the resource library of any paratrooper, reenactor or historian. It combines simple understandable details about the development of the paratroop infantry with a focus on the equipment (Chutes) themselves. A lot of black and white as well as color photographs help everyone understand what was developed when, and more importantly for collectors, how to identify fakes. Very nice addition to anyone World War II buff's library. Highly recommended.
This book includes beautiful photography of WWII parachute gear, primarily British and U.S., supplemented by black and white pictures and line drawings. The book also includes a reprint of Technical Order 13-5-7, the U.S. Army's first publication regarding parachutes for use by airborne troops.

On the down side the book's text is less complete for allies like Poland and France, neither of which had done much with airborne troops prior to the war. It is significantly scanty on Soviet gear, an oversight which is harder to accept given the large-scale exercises conducted by the USSR in the 1930s. Nevertheless, the book is at a minimum an excellent visual reference.
