Books about the history of parachuting
Hi, I'm doing some research about the origins and major advances in parachuting/sky diving, so I was hoping someone here could recommend a book for me to read. The only one's I have heard of are "The Sky People," "The Silken Angels," and "Big Umbrella." These any good? Any better ones?

[In reply to]
"The Yorkshire Birdman" Leo Valentines's biography, first published in France during the late 1940s and subsequently translated in to english. Leslie Irvin's biography, published in Britain. Goerge Quilter's biography. Plus hundreds of military history books in every language, but try to focus on books published in American, English, French, German, Italian, Japanese and Russian because they were the first to use paratroopers in war.
