84. SKY WARRIORS: BRITISH AIRBORNE FORCES IN THE SECOND WORLD WAR

Hiscox Tent
The legendary ‘Red Devils’ were among the finest combat troops of the Second World War. Created at Churchill’s instigation in June 1940, they began as a single parachute battalion of 500 men and grew into three 10,000-strong airborne divisions. Wearing their distinctive maroon berets, steel helmets and Dennison smocks, they served with distinction in every major theatre of the conflict – including North Africa, Sicily, mainland Europe and the Far East and played a starring role in some most iconic airborne operations in history. Bestselling historian Saul David tells a riveting new history of the British airborne experience across the Second World War.
