Inspired by a new form of Soviet warfare, Germany created the paratrooper division of the Luftwaffe known as the "Green Devils." These two documentary programs review the history of these soldiers, first in "The Green Devils: German Paratrooper Elite 1933-1941," which reveals their origins and first Western operations in 1940. Next, in "The Green Devils: German Paratrooper Elite: 1942-1945," viewers learn how they secured a memorable victory during the 1941 invasion of Crete, and continued to play a major role in Hitler's plans even as he converted them to the elite ground force which eventually retreated back to Germany as the war neared its end. 106 min. total. Soundtrack: English.
