Quick Overview

First (and only) edition printed in August 1945 in Nice, France. Medium size hardcover book which contains 94 pages with photos, drawings and the complete unit roster. This is the very hard to find book of a small Airborne unit which saw plenty of action all over Europe. Low grade quality paper and cardboard was used to make this book. The pages are still very nice but the spine of the book has some damage because of which the cover is not very well connected to the pages anymore. It needs to be handled with care. However the rarity of this book warrants a place in a collection or library.

Good condition.
