The tough-as-nails paratroopers of the British Airborne, the legendary Red Devils, strike boldly into the midst of the enemy by parachute and glider. Their mission is to “Hold until relieved.”
The British Airborne (along with their American Allies) spearheaded the landings in Normandy by landing behind German lines and seizing key objective and fighting off counter-attacks until the lads coming off the beach could relieve them. They also played a major role during the Arnhem campaign charged with the responsibility of capturing and holding the bridge over the Rhine at Arnhem till relived by 30th Corps.
Though only lightly equipped these fearless warriors were highly trained and ready for the task at hand. Their officers relied on their initiative, as the fluid nature of an airborne operation often threw up the unexpected or unknown.
