|Format||64 pages, softbound||MSRP (USD)||$18.95|
Prior to the formation of dedicated "Airborne" divisions in 1942, the US Army maintained individual parachute regiments. Gordon L. Rottman details concise unit histories and assimilation into divisions in the 198th volume of Osprey's "Elite" series. Coverage also highlights combat uniforms, insignia and personal equipment. And Mark Stacey's color plates offer superb references for modelers. Decidedly recommended!
