A first-hand account of one who was at the helm of the action. The author neglects no aspect of the various facets of the rise and fall of the once-feared might German Air Force. An excellent study in the pitfalls of fascist government and bureaucratic bungling, especially when led by a delusional drug addicts (Goering) and a maniacal despot (Hitler). This book should be required reading of all students of Public Administration, as "How NOT to do..." manual.

Baumbach excels here with a monster masher of a book - Truckloads of information, amazing stories and extraordinary personalities. The ultimate eye-opening journey to battle in the air, revealing the war in a way most of us have never dared thought of before.
