The Guns of the Airborne

Allied Airborne forces jumped into Africa, Sicily, France and Germany. In Operations Torch, Husky, Dragoon Overlord and Varsity, from D-Day to crossing the Rhine, Airborne troops dropped behind enemy lines and fought against overwhelming odds. And they had guns and other arms specific to just the Airborne. Learn about the men and the guns those on both the American and British side.
