Text in French

THE WAFFEN-SSPARATROOPERS SS-Fallschirmjäger-Bataillon 500/600 Here is a relatively unknown subject. A battalion of Waffen-SS paratroopers was set up in the fall of 1943 to carry out special missions. The author, a paratroop captain in the Luftwaffe(FRG), earning his German, French and US wings in the sixties, now a historian, gives here a detailed history in three volumes of about 400 pages each. The first volume is devoted to the operation against Tito’s troops in Yugoslavia, the second to the fighting in the Baltic States and the third to operations in Hungary, in the Ardennes and in the Oder bridgehead. The three volumes devoted to the SS-Fallschirmjäger-Bataillon 500/600 include documents and more than 1 000 photographs.


“The book is very well illustrated by high quality contemporary and more current photographs, aircraft profiles, maps, and reproduced documents. This provides its main value for English speakers, for whom the text might be otherwise be limited to high school French.”

- Charles Melson, U.S. Marine Corps University
