Overview

First published in 1945 and comprising a compilation of fascinating primary accounts of airborne combat as told by the very men who fought in the action, ‘By Air to Battle’ is the official history of Airborne operations by British Paratroops in World War II. Spanning the introduction of the Central Landing Establishment to the end of the war, we follow the heroic exploits of the British First and Sixth Airborne Divisions. Never before available in ebook form ‘By Air to Battle’ is an inspiring and at times very comic description of the true events that took place at such historic conflicts as Arnhem, the Rhine, Normandy and Bruneval as well as the Airborne forces in North Africa, Sicily and Italy. This is a must-read for any military history enthusiast.
