Bolt Action: Fallschirmjager (German Paratroopers)

The German Fallschirmjager Paratroopers were at the tip of the spear when war broke out in 1939. The world's first paratroopers to be used in large numbers, they led daring assaults on strategic targets, such as the fortress at Eben Emael, enabling the following panzers to overrun Europe.

As a paratrooper force the Fallschirmjager's greatest achievement would be the intense fighting they performed as they seized Crete in the face of more numerous British and Commonwealth forces during 1941. This pyrrhic victory meant that they were never again used en masse.

Small units still operated by glider and parachute, famously rescuing Italian leader Mussolini, and raiding behind American lines in the Ardennes. The occupation of the monastery at Monte Cassino was their finest hour.  With bitter fighting, they held out for months in the face of overwhelming odds.  It was during the defense of Monte Cassino that they earning themselves the nickname 'Green Devils'.

The German Paratroopers were arguably some of the toughest troops in the German Army.
