SILENT ATTACK The Taking of the Bridges at Veldwezelt, Vorenhoven and Kanne in Belgium by German Paratroops, 10 May 1940

£30.00 £4.99

Outstanding book taken from both the German and Belgian sides. This is a very objective account of the Fallschirmjager in early WW2. Story centres on those units that did not attack Fort Eben Emael, but instead took the bridges needed by the Germans to invade Belgium over the Albert Canal at the same time. Training, the run-up to the attack, and the bridge assaults are covered. The attention to detail of the authors, alongside the very good collection of period photographs in this title are a unbeatable combination.
