Trained in the use of the Eureka radar, holophan lights, and
colored ground panels, the pathfinders dropped thirty minutes
before the main airborne landing to provide ground guidance for
successive airborne jumps. The concept of the pathfinders proved
successful and they were used during the remainder of World War II.
The story of the airborne pathfinders and the vital part they
played in airborne operations during the Second World War has
rarely been told. In this new book, Jeff Moran tells the story of
the operations they led, the equipment used a much of it unique to
the pathfinders a and has memorialized them by noting, in many
cases, the individual teams of pathfinders.
