The US had begun seriously organising a parachute unit after German Fallschirmjäger actions in the war in Europe demonstrated what could be achieved. The new paratroop units were quickly created and immediately became an elite within the US Army due to their training and more rigorous standards. They saw action in many theatres, but are perhaps best known for their participation in the Normandy Landings and Operation Market Garden in 1944.

The accuracy of these figures looks to be good. They all wear the 1942-style jacket with the slanted pockets, which saw service for much of the War, including D-Day, but had been withdrawn by Arnhem. The trousers with the large cargo pockets – sometimes supported by ties round the leg – and the boots all look good, as do the helmets with their netting and extra compresses attached to some.

Weapons are often less than clear in their detail, but the general shape looks correct for the carbines and Thompsons, plus one M3 (‘Grease Gun’). One figure in the second row holds a bazooka. The tripod-mounted machine gun in the bottom row is also lacking much detail, but seems to be a Browning M1919A4, which would be appropriate.

Although generally the level of sculpting is very good, with clothing and some equipment done well, many of the weapons lack much detail. Also several have a lot of excess plastic between figure and weapon, which is unusual for Caesar and therefore particularly worthy of mention. There is no flash.
