Stupenda opera in tre volumi dedicata alle uniformi e agli equipaggiamenti dei Fallschirmjäger durante la seconda guerra mondiale. Questo primo volume presenta, attraverso una vasta iconografia che comprende oltre 1.000 foto a colori e 280 in bianco e nero (molte delle quali inedite), le uniformi Graublaue, le tenute di volo, le calzature, le tenute tropicali e invernali, tenute speciali, ecc. 

The books will be indispensable to collectors, uniform enthusiasts and military historians alike. This three-volume work is the most comprehensive and detailed study of the World War II German paratrooper to date, providing in-depth examinations of nearly every uniform item - including all models of jump smocks - and equipment used from the airborne forces’ establishment in the mid-1930s to May 1945. It also extensively covers specific insignia and various unique ephemera. Finally, the work provides in-depth summaries of the operations the “Green Devils” fought in, from the air assaults on Norway, Belgium’s Fort Eben Emael, Holland and Crete, over ground combat in North Africa, Russia, Italy and Normandy through the Battle of the Bulge and on to the last days of the Third Reich.
