History; Military history; Special & elite forces
Published to coincide with 75th anniversary of its formation, this is the definitive history of the iconic Parachute Regiment, told through the voices of more than 200 of the soldiers themselves. From the daring raids of World War 2 through Northern Ireland, The Falklands, Bosnia and Afghanistan, the Paras have a reputation for being where the fighting is fiercest and the odds of survival are often stacked heavily against them. The gripping, visceral first person narrative makes this book stand apart from conventional regimental histories.
