Britain’s Airborne Forces of WW2 Uniforms and Equipment

The books title is quite misleading.  This is not simply a book of equipment.

The book is broken down into chapters based on the formation of the British airborne forces in 1940 and each chapter looks at a major campaign where airborne forces were deployed.

Each chapter has a large number of photos showing equipment and the uniforms used, and shows the evolution of equipment required.

This is a great book for reenactors looking to portray airborne servicemen and will provide the ability to help them portray specific campaigns during WW2.

The narrative in the book covers most of the main campaigns of the war but specifically from the airborne perspective.

I would highly recommend this book for anyone looking at learning about the parachute regiment and airborne forces evolution in World War 2.

You can buy the book here from Pen and Sword books.

Please note I was not paid to write this review but was sent a review copy of the book. All comments are my own, and the publishers have not amended the review in any way.
