    Praiseworthy┬┐but not compelling┬┐collection

    The Luftwaffe in World War II by Francis Crosby, another volume in the Images of War series, gives us a collection of photographs of the Luftwaffe in several different theatres of the war. Some of the photos capture the eye simply by showing something unexpected: a Heinkel bomber flying over a sailing ship, or the wonderful shot of three Messerschmitt fighters looking small against the massive cliffs of Dover. Other images are more substantive and sobering: a confident Hitler dining with equally confident pilots on Christmas Eve the massive Heinkel manufacturing plant and the abandoned aircraft left in the desert as Rommel retreated. Some of the more interesting pictures are the aerial photos of London taken by Germany prior to the war.
