THE SILENT ATTACK

by  Oscar Gonzalez, Thomas Steinke & Ian Tannahill 






Much has been written about the capture of Fort Eben Emael, Belgium by German paratroopers, on May 10th, 1940. The operation involved the first use of gliders, shaped charges, and paratroopers dropping behind enemy lines. They were part of a larger group: The Sturmablteilung Koch, the elite of the Luftwaffe, whose mission was not only to take Eben Emael, but also the three bridges over the Alberto canal: Veldwezelt, Vroenhoven and Kanne. The success of the German attacks on Belgium and France would depend on the rapid conquest of those bridges.
