German Paratroopers – Uniforms and Equipment 1936-1945″ are aimed at collectors, uniform enthusiasts and military historians alike. Published in three volumes, this is a thorough study of the uniforms and equipment used by the German paratroopers from the early days right to the very end of the Third Reich. It also looks at all the paratroopers’ insignia and documents and, of course, at the battles the Green Devils fought, from Eben Emael in Holland, Crete, North Africa, Russia, Italy and Monte Cassino, Normandy right up to the Battle of the Bulge and the last days of the Nazi regime. “German Paratroopers – Uniforms and Equipment 1936-1945” is the most comprehensive and detailed study of the German paratroopers to date, showing nearly every item of their everyday wear and combat dress – including all models of jump smocks. For these books there has been an unprecedented cooperation between collectors and museums from all over the world with the author and the publishing company. The three volumes run to more than 1,000 pages with thousands of specially commissioned colour photographs of original Fallschirmjäger artefacts, some of them never shown before, accompanied by period black and white images, many of them unpublished so far.
