From the creation of the first volunteer paratroop unit shortly after the birth of Israel and of the Israeli Defense Force, this arm of service has been recognized as elite. They have also been the first choice for daring special missions, and it is mainly from their ranks that Israel's Special Forces units have been recruited. Their ethos has also been widespread throughout the IDF; a unique aspect of the Israeli military is the cross-posting of officers from the airborne, armored, and other units, to ensure that all unit commanders share their aggressive qualities and their thorough understanding of the capabilities of all arms. In this way the influence of the paratroop arm has been out of all proportion to its size. This fully illustrated study is a complete history of Israeli paratroopers from its creation to the present day, including relevant developments in their role and organization, as well as their achievements and setbacks in conflicts such as the Six Days War and Yom Kippur War., paperback, Label: Osprey Publishing, Osprey Publishing, Product group: Book, Published: 2018-10-23, Release date: 2018-10-23, Studio: Osprey Publishing, Sales rank: 341253

David Campbell, Books, History, Israeli Paratroopers 1954-2016, As a child in New York, author Joseph Campbell (1904-1987) became interested in Native Americans and mythology through books about American Indians and visits to the American Museum of Natural History. He wrote more than 40 books including The Hero with a Thousand Faces (1949), The Mythic Image (1974), and The Power of Myth (1988) with Bill Moyers, and is now considered one of the foremost interpreters of sacred tradition in modern time. Campbell earned his B.A. and M.A. degrees at Columbia University in 1925 and 1927, but quit the doctoral program when he was told that mythology was not an acceptable subject for his thesis. He subsequently studied medieval French and Sanskrit in Paris and Germany, taught at the Canterbury School, and in 1934, joined the literature department at Sarah Lawrence College. During the 1940s and 1950s he collaborated with Swami Nikhilananda on translations of the Upanishads and The Gospel of Sri Ramakrishna.
