A second volume about the Polish 1st Independent Parachute Brigade in World War Two, covering its weapons, equipment and transport in particular during their support of the British airborne assault on Arnhem in September 1944. All personal items and specific parts of the uniforms are shown in the detailed photographs. Largely overlooked in other histories of parachute troops, the Polish unit differed in many ways from its British counterparts and this book fleshes out the history, making good the omissions and errors in other works. This is a rarely documented aspect of World War II militaria history, and is essential reading for WWII militaria enthusiasts and uniform collectors.
