WINGS of PEGASUS: British Glider Pilot Regiment. They carried guns, jeeps, tanks and infantry and suffered 1,500 casualties -a high figure for such a comparatively small force.

Click to EnlargeWINGS of PEGASUS: British Glider Pilot Regiment in WWII. by George CHatterton.Summary: This is a reprint of the well written and detailed operational history of the British Glider Pilot Regiment, which saw action in most of the British Airborne operations during WW 2. This is the story of a force unique in military history, told by the man who founded, trained and led it. The men of the Glider Pilot Regiment not only had to be skilled pilots-men of the Glider Pilot Regiment also had to be tough, skilled fighters, able to operate at high speed, often behind the enemy lines, side by side with the units they transported. In all, they landed sortie 2,000 gliders-in Sicily, Normandy and the South of France, at Arnhem and on the Rhine. They carried guns, jeeps, tanks and infantry and suffered 1,500 casualties -a high figure for such a comparatively small force. But this story did not end with World War II. The regiment flew liaison aircraft and helicopters in Korea and Malaya before it was absorbed into the Army Air Corps where it's traditions continue to flourish. 282 pages, 25 photos, 13 maps. Durable cloth covered edition.
