Overview

The "Lost Histories of World War II" series is a fascinating, photo-filled collection of never-before-seen, recently de-classified accounts of important episodes in World War II chronicles.
The War Against the Luftwaffe 1943–1944 is the first book in the "Lost Histories" series. Using recently declassified information, this book presents the first-ever history of World War II that recognizes D-Day as a milestone, air war victory over Germany. The book answers a question debated for years — on the most important day to the survival of the Third Reich — where was the Luftwaffe? The answer, says the author, was a risky change in commanders and a simple change in strategy. The War Against the Luftwaffe adds to our understanding of World War II and establishes D-Day as not just a land invasion, but an air war victory of profound consequence.
