Although many countries employed paratroops in World War II, only those of Germany were entirely controlled by the Air Force. They acquired the nickname ‘Green Devils’ & were very much an elite force. They played a major role in the invasions of Denmark, Norway, Belgium, the Netherlands & France, as well as on the island of Crete. After Crete however their airborne role largely lapsed & for the rest of the war they were mainly used as elite infantry.

The figures are beautifully sculpted with great proportions & all the detail you could ask for. Weapons are well defined, clothing has realistic folds & all the items of kit are crisply done. There is no flash.

Caesar have done their homework on historical accuracy too, as all the men have the paratrooper helmet & jump smock. Items of kit are the standard bread bag, field flask & the cloth version of the gas mask case, exclusively issued to paratroopers. All have appropriate ammunition pouches, including the special ammunition belt that hung around the neck & was another unique paratrooper item.

Weapons are the Mauser Kar 98K rifle, MP40 submachine gun & MG34 machine gun, while one man is using a Panzerfaust. This simple but effective weapon was as popular with paratroops as everyone else. Two of the figures are carrying the FG42 assault rifle which was specifically designed for the Fallschirmtruppen. Both the FG42 (introduced naturally enough in 1942) and the Panzerfaust force these figures to be for the later part of the war.

This set from Caesar includes all the usual poses for the period but has managed to inject some pace and life into them, with figures you can actually believe are advancing under fire or about to throw a grenade. There is no excess plastic and no assembly necessary.
