They were first deployed in battle by the Nazis during their attack on the Greek island of Crete during World War II. Since then, paratroopers have become a key component of modern warfare, adding the element of surprise to attacking forces and never allowing defenders the comfort of knowing that their flank is secure. AIRBORNE ASSAULT traces the history of these unique warriors, from their use in World War II to today. See how the technology and tactics have evolved, as better planes, parachutes, weapons and concealment have made them into some of the deadliest fighters ever. Military historians detail the battles where paratroopers have helped turn the tide, and combat footage shows them in action. And get an up-close look at their training. It's the ultimate portrait of some of the most important soldiers in the world's armies.
