about

Whilst many books have been written on the history of the Parachute Regiment and Airborne Forces in WWII, none of them have concentrated solely on the story of the 1st Parachute Brigade in North Africa between 1942 and 1943. Helion and Company are therefore pleased to announce the publication of Tunisian Tales - the 1st Parachute Brigade in North Africa 1942 - 1943 by Niall Cherry.

Tunisian Tales covers the raising of the Brigade in 1941 and training in the UK before their transfer to the Mediterranean theater of operations. It also covers the three airborne operations carried out by the Brigade there - Bone, Souk-el-Arba and Depienne/Oudna - in great detail.

The book is complemented by over 100 photos many never published before, several maps (including one used by Lieutenant Colonel Pearson when in command of the 1st Parachute Battalion) and coverage of the Airborne Medical Services in the area, besides extensive appendices.

This is Niall Cherry's third book for Helion following on from his highly successful previous titles - Most Unfavorable Ground and Striking Back. As in his previous works, detailed research has been carried out using official reports, war diaries and veterans' accounts. The book has the full approval of 'Airborne Assault', the Museum of the Parachute Regiment and Airborne Forces at Duxford, and we are delighted that its curator, Jon Baker, has contributed the Foreword.

Tunisian Tales represents a notable contribution to new research into the history of Britain's airborne forces. It is being published in a strictly limited edition hardback run of 1,000 copies, each signed by the author and individually numbered.
