Soldiers Falling From The Sky
The well-written book introduces readers to the concept of parachutes and parachute troops from the time of
Leonardo Da Vinci and Garnerins to Leroux and Irwin, to the Reich in Germany.
It shows parachutists from several countries (even an aircraft being dropped by parachutes) and then
concentrates on the design, manufacture, packing and use of German parachutes.
The book shows and explains Fallschirmjäger training, from tumbling on a mat through maneuvers
with live ammunition.
The final pages explain the requirements for becoming a Wehrmacht parachutist
and how to volunteer to join Fallschirmjaeger Regiment 1 in Stendal.
