By Eric Queen. A culmination of 12 years of research, this reference work traces the history of the Army Paratroopers of the Fallschirm-Infanterie, from their origins in 1937, to the expansion to battalion strength in 1938, then on through operations at Wula Gulowska (Poland) and Moerdijk (Holland). This comprehensive look at their history is supported by 600 images, many of which are full color, and nearly 90% are previously unpublished. This work also features original examples of nearly all documents awarded to the Army Paratroopers, as well as the most comprehensive study to date of the Army Paratrooper badge or Fallschirmschutzenabzeichen Heer. Original examples of all known variations (silver, aluminum, cloth, feinzink) are pictured in full color. If you are interested in owning one of these badges, this book could literally save you from making a $2,000.00 mistake! 240 pages.
