GERMAN PARATROOPERS UNIFORMS AND EQUIPMENT 1936-1945:
                              VOLUME II  HELMETS, EQUIPMENT AND WEAPONS

by Kasrl Veltze



In this second of the projected three volumes of German Paratroopers, the author, Karl Veltzé, not only takes a very detailed look at the Fallschirmjager helmets, but also deals with the paratroopers' special equipment (gasmask bags, hand grenade bags, ammunition bandoleers, medical equipment). Standard field equipment is also covered, followed by a chapter devoted to the individual and crew-served weapons utilized by the German airborne forces. Among these are both versions of the special FG 42 paratrooper rifle. The parachutes used by the German paras are examined, whilst the last chapter looks at their drop containers.

THE RAF PATHFINDERS

by Martyn Chorlton

The story of Bomber Command's elite squadrons. Twenty five minutes was what it took to run the gauntlet of the Berlin air defences from end to end at full stretch. The flak barrage put up from the ground was merciless and, if your plane was caught in the searchlights, you had little chance of survival. The Luftwaffe night fighters were waiting for you on the way home as well. This new history of the RAF Pathfinder Squadrons outlines the increasingly successful role they played in bringing accuracy and effectiveness into the air war waged by Bomber Command against the Third Reich during 1942-1945.

TEN DAYS IN AUGUST: THE SIEGE OF LIÈGE 1914

by Terence Zuber 

In August 1914 the German 2nd Army had the mission of taking the vital fortresses of Liège and Namur, and defeating the Anglo- French-Belgian forces in the open plains of northern Belgium. The attack on the fortress at Liège from 5 to 16 August 1914 had tremendous political and military importance, and yet there has never been a complete account of the siege. Making use of both German and Belgian sources, and supported by tactical maps, this book for the first time describes and evaluates the construction of the fortress, its military purpose, the German plan and the conduct of the attack.
