Paras Versus the Reich: Canada's Paratroopers at War, 1942-1945

This meticulously researched book traces the development of airborne forces from earliest mythology to their earth-shattering debut in the Second World War. More importantly, it reveals in exacting detail the story of Canada's paratroopers — from the early resistance to their establishment, the rigorous selection process and gruelling training, to their unrivalled combat record. It tells the story of the 1st Canadian Parachute Battalion, which never failed to achieve its assigned missions, nor did it ever lose an objective once captured. Through the pages of this book the reader will experience the exceptional courage, endurance, fighting skill, and tenacity of Canada's paratroopers in the Second World War.
