Description

Few divisions in the British Army have earned such a valorous reputation so quickly as the Parachute Division. Known as the Red Devils by the Germans for their trademark maroon beret and dogged fighting ability, the British airborne force grew into a force to be reckoned with, whether delivered by Dakota aircraft, Horsa glider or as a front line shock troops.

Drawn from all over Britain, the volunteers established an awesome reputation for daring and sheer bloody-mindedness, culminating in their heroic but, ultimately, doomed defense of Arnhem bridge in Holland. Although comparatively lightly-armed, British Paras could dish it out and would not hesitate to close to hand-to-hand fighting if needs be, screaming their war cries as they went.
