Ridgway's Paratroopers chronicles the life and career of one of the foremost combat leaders in American history.Clay Blair, a prolific and respected author, takes the reader through Ridgway's career from staff officer through airborne division commander to Corps commander.Along the way, Blair highlights many of the officers who were influential and instrumental in creating the army's first airborne formations and the doctrine for conducting vertical envelopment warfare.

While this book does focus on the officer corps and leadership of the airborne, it provides much information and many insights into the selection, training and combat operations of American paratroopers in World War II.For those who wish a foxhole view, there are many other books that address the combat paratrooper aspect of the airborne more thoroughly.

This book contains numerous photographs and maps.It is widely sourced from a very robust bibliography, fully indexed and contains a roster of every commander and executive officer of every paratrooper unit from corps to battalion level.

Anyone interested in airborne operations in World War II would love this book!
