As with other Osprey books, this is well-written and fun to read... This text offers a good overview of both Allied and Axis airborne operations in WWII; it is particularly nice to see the less well-know Soviet and Japanese forces included.
Michael Koznarsky, Historical Miniature Gamer Magazine
...this book provides an excellent overview and summary of World War II airborne force development. It is an excellent starting point for anyone interested in the history of airborne warfare and contains a further reading guide to a variety of titles and topics for anyone interested in more detailed information... Overall, the book is a valuable contribution to literature pertaining to airborne operations of World War II and provides an outstanding and clear overview of a very complex subject.
