9780099635802: The Men of the Red Beret: Airborne Forces 1940 to Present Day

Forged on the battlefields of World War II - in North Africa, Italy, Normandy, the Rhine Crossing and, most famously, at Arnhem - the Paras have since been deployed in Palestine, Malaya, Cyprus, Suez, Borneo and Aden. They experienced some of the fiercest fighting in the Falklands and their long-standing commitment in Northern Ireland dates from 1969. Told in the words of the men themselves, this collection of first-hand accounts of war is a testimonial to the courage, endurance, defiance and humour of the Airborne Forces and the Parachute Regiment. The author also wrote "Above All, Courage" and "Northern Ireland: Soldiers Talking".
