Book about Hungarian Airborne

Postby Tengerészgyalogos » 15 Jul 2016 12:06

Hello all!
There is an excellent book about the Hungarian Airborne in WWII: " Aerial Hussars or Hussars of the Air". It is alas, so far only available in Hungarian and begging to be translated. I got it at the Hungarian Military Historian Institute and I'm now reading it.
If your interested in this fascinating chapter of military history, I highly recommend it.
Happy reading!

Here is a detailed caption mentioning the Hungarian paratroopers (excerpt from vol. 2 of 'Magyar Warriors', currently in the editing process).
