The final major offensive German action of the Greece campaign was the German invasion of Crete, in May 1941. a b Ailsby, Christopher: Hitler's Sky Warriors: German Paratroopers in Action, 1939-1945, page 12. Spellmount Limited, 2000. This operation stands as possibly the defining moment for the Fallschirmjäger during World War Two. The Fallschirmjäger would suffer further heavy losses during the Battle of Crete especially during Operation Merkur which would be the end of large scale airborne and glider operations for the Fallschirmjäger.

Drawing together hundreds of images, Hitler's Sky Warriors presents a unique examination of the German airborned soldier in World War II. Comprehensive and authoritative, it includes chapters on the corps's recruitment and training, its specialized equipment, its operation in the Low Countries in 1940, its seizure of Crete in 1941, and its combat on the Eastern Front and in Italy. This is a book that fills an important niche in the World War II library.
Reviews about Hitler's Sky Warriors: German Paratroopers in Action 1939-1945 (3):

About 1/2 way through the book and really enjoying it. Nice, detailed pictures and the book is all glossy enamel pages. Very high quality. Highly recommended. Good details on the German Fallschirmjager and an interesting read.

HITLER'S SKY WARRIORS is a very informative and well documented review of the Fallschirmjager (parachute hunters, literally) during the second world war. There are more than 250 excellent black and white photos with detailed descriptions about any peculiarities associated with them, such as uniform or weapons variations. This is one of the highlights of the book.
The exploits of these paratroopers are examined from their inception and training through all the major campaigns until their eventual demise in May 1945.
Where the book lets down, from my view, is not what it says, but what it excludes. It is a rather detached, textbook style approach to the subject matter. Many readers contemplating this book would be aware of much of the basic subject matter Mr. Ailsby (the author) rehashes. He goes to great lengths to describe which particular officer was commanding a particular element during a particular battle even at the platoon level.
I'm not inferring that this is not interesting particularly to historians, but there are very little first person accounts or individual exploits covered. The Fallshirm were an elite and very effective fighting unit, yet this book does little to leave you with that impression.
We are told little of how effective they were in combat or how respected they were by their enemies. For example, we are told they were stubborn in the hedgerows of France but are given no clue as to how they were effective, how they were deployed, how they used their weapons, or the casualties they inflicted. More time is spent instead describing their defeats and casualties.
Ailsby is quite right in stating that German units in general were defeated primarily due to overwhelming allied superiority in air power and material resources, rather than allied military superiority.
Inspite of the books weaknesses, I still recommend it because it is still informative and has many interesting and heretofore unpublished photos. And I did learn that Max Schmelling (you remember him) was a Fallschirmjager volunteer and served during the Crete campaign.

An outstanding title for the Fallschirmjager enthusiast! Outstanding photographs and accounts of this Luftwaffe branch. A must for WW2 historians.
