Breakdown of units:

Fallschirmjager

Contains 30 plastic figures

The world’s first paratroopers to be used in large numbers, the German Fallschirmjager were at the tip of the spear when war broke out in 1939. They led daring assaults on strategic targets, such as the fortress at Eben Emael, enabling the following panzers to overrun Europe.

As a paratrooper force, the Fallschirmjager’s greatest achievement would be the intense fighting they performed as they seized Crete in the face of more numerous British and Commonwealth forces during 1941. This pyrrhic victory meant that they were never again used en masse.

US Airborne

Contains 30 plastic figures

Having blooded themselves during the fighting in Sicily in 1943 and then fought in arguably their most famous operations such as the Battle For Carentan during the D-Day landings in June 1944, the US Airborne divisions were withdrawn from the front lines to rest and refit.

Re-equipped with the new green M-1943 uniform which was being used across the US military to standardise supply, the divisions which included the 101st ‘Screaming Eagles’ and the 82nd ‘All American’ would be used by Allied High command during Operation Market Garden – an ambitious plan to open a corridor through Holland by parachuting in several US, British and Polish airborne divisions to take key bridges.
