Thomas Gunn Miniatures

The German Fallschirmjager were the Luftwaffe's elite infantry arm and took part in several high profile missions including the assault on Eben Emael and Crete in 1941 where they suffered high casualties. Despite these losses Crete was captured but is considered something of a Pyrrhic victory. Generally employed in a ground infantry role after Crete the Fallschirmjager showed tenacity and courage on every front and were respected by the Allied forces as a force second to none. Airborne missions after Crete did continue on a smaller scale and included glider and parachute assaults in the Mediterranean theatre most notably the rescue of Mussolini at Gran Sasso.
This figure is depicted with an un-covered helmet.
