The Luftwaffe in Camera 1939-1945
The Luftwaffe in Camera features a wide range of fascinating archive photographs of the Luftwaffe taken during the Second World War. It depicts the operations, aircraft and men of the Luftwaffe 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. The book 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 has toured Germany to visit and interview Luftwaffe Veterans. 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 twentieth-century history.
