Description Extended Information
 
Dragon DRF70281 German Fallschirmjager Infanterie Batallion, Operation Green, Sudetenland 1938 - "Alois" (1:6 Scale) "The German soldier is to be tough as leather, fleet as a greyhound, and hard as Krupp steel."
- Adolf Hitler discussing the creation of the new German soldat

During World War II, the German Air Force (Luftwaffe) raised a variety of airborne light infantry (Fallschirmjager) units. Unlike the United Kingdom, the British Commonwealth, and the USA, the German paratroopers were part of the German Air Force rather than the German Army (Wehrmacht Heer). Starting from a small collection of Fallschirmjager battalions at the beginning of the war, the Luftwaffe built up a division-sized unit of three Fallschirmjager regiments plus supporting arms and air assets, known as the 7th Flieger Division (7th Air Division).

Fallschirmjager units made the first airborne invasion when invading Denmark on April 9th,1940. In the early morning hours they attacked and took control of Aalborg airport which played a key role acting as a refuel station for the Luftwaffe in the further invasion into Norway. In the same assault the bridges around Aalborg were taken. Other airborne attacks on Denmark the 9 April were also carried out, including one on a fort on the island Masneda.

The first opposed airborne attacks occurred in Norway, first during the initial invasion when Fallschirmjagers captured the defended air base of Sola, near Stavanger. The following Norwegian Campaign also saw the first Fallschirmjager defeat when a company was dropped on the village and railroad junction of Dombas on April 14th, 1940, and was destroyed by the Norwegian Army in a five day battle.

Pictured here is a German paratrooper from the Fallschirmjager Infantrie Batallion, then taking part in Operation Green, the occupation of the Sudetenland during 1938 - "Alois". Sold Out!
