World War II Troop Type Parachutes was written for anyone interested in the history of airborne troops, and is profusely illustrated with unpublished period and contemporary photographs. Collectors, modelers and researchers will be able to identify all of the troop parachutes used by the Allied powers in World War II. Additionally, technical data, drawings and packing instructions are included for those who own or find a vintage parachute. The narrative describes the developmental history of the equipment and employment technique. Incidentals such as aircraft, tactical use, uniforms and even insignia are discussed if they alter or refute what has previously been accepted as fact.
