WW2 Hungarian Paratrooper

520

The 1st Hungarian Parachute Battalion was formed in 1940, and saw their first combat experience against Yugoslavia in 1941. The paratroopers did not see combat again until the 19 December 1944 when, as part of the elite Szent László Division, they were deployed as emergency troops to plug gaps in the defence of Budapest. The Regiment suffered heavy losses but was praised in German Army despatches for its aggressive fighting spirit against overwhelming Soviet attacks.

Even after the fall of Budapest the paratroopers fought the Soviets all the way into Austria as they were pushed back, eventually surrendering to the Americans.

Unique minifigure I've never heard of before Verified Purchase

Love the camouflage pattern of the upper uniform (reminds me quite a bit of the oak uniforms on the german minifigures) & the unique weapon included with it.
