The Assault on Crete - Story and Art by Ron Ledwell. The German Fallschirmjaeger (Paratroop) forces were the first organized parachute troops to be actually employed in warfare. These elite troops captured the "impregnable" Belgian Eben Emal fort as well as the massive concrete blockhouses on the vaunted French Maginot line. The Germans launched their Blitz into the Balkans, and the Commonwealth forces fell back to the Aegean island of Crete. Goering convinced Hitler that his Fallschirmjaegers could mop up the British. But the beleaguered Brits so mauled the cream of the Fuhrer's Fallschirmjaeger forces that Hitler never employed them as paratroopers again. 24 pages, B&W. Mature Readers. Cover price $3.95.
