Merriam Press World War 2 History Series. The Soviet Union pioneered the use of parachute troops during the 1930s. However, few of the large-scale Soviet parachute drops attempted by the Soviets during World War II were successes by Western standards. There were inherent differences in the Soviet philosophy of airborne warfare which caused them to view many of their airborne operations in a far different light than other countries. The relationship between the Soviet airborne forces and the partisans was constantly considered by the Soviet High Command when planning airborne operations and that relationship is stressed here. This is a comprehensive history of the weapons, equipment, aircraft and gliders, training, and combat history of the elite of the Soviet armed forces in the period up to and including World War II. 28 photos and ill., 2 maps, 4 organization charts.
