Amazon Link Recently in a moment of extreme weakness and under the influence of red wine,I ordered the above. Not been 100% impressed with it so far,it's very interesting,but it needs a good editor,for example,the author makes references to 'Great Britian' & 'the English Army'. However,the reason I'm posting in thus, in the chapter named 'Trouble Spot Afghanistan:The Afghan Company' reference is made to an airborne counter attack by the British in July/August 1940. Following several close calls/ambushes/contacts with British forces,once when resting up,their 'village' (disguised as a tribal village) was spotted by a British recce aircraft. Fearing the British would return to bomb the village (apparently oweing to a lack of livestock/women/children it didn't look convincing) the unit pressed on. I wasn't aware the British were using paratroopers at this time,especially on the NW Frontier,anyone able to shed any light on this?
