Master Box 1:35 US Paratroopers (1944) - Plastic Figure Model Kit #3511

On the night of June 6th 1944, Operation Overlord, "D-Day", signalled the opening of the Second Front in France. Thousands of allied landing craft began disembarking troops on five French beaches, under cover of air and naval gun fire. The 101st and 82nd American airborne divisions and 6th English airborne division were dropped by parachute and gliders 10 - 15 km inland, behind German lines. Even though the paratroopers were widely spread while landing, they nevertheless managed to occupy crossroads and to keep the German troops engaged. This provided invaluable assistance to those landing on the beaches. This kit includes three U.S. paratroopers, who are moving carefully through the German rear areas, trying to find their comrades, one appears to be wounded.
