Overview

A wide range of fascinating World War II archive photographs depicts the operations, aircraft, and men of the Luftwaffe. They are shown throughout the successes and glory of the first three years at war and then in the final years, as they were forced to relinquish the territory they had fought to gain and retreat towards their homeland. This collection covers important campaigns such as the Battle of Britain and the devastating Blitzkrieg offensive, as well as the ingenuity and courage shown so that they could never be discounted from Allied calculations. Over several years the author toured Germany, interviewing Luftwaffe Veterans, and the majority of photographs that appear in this book come from their personal albums. Together they provide a unique pictorial record of this crucial phase in 20th-century history.
