Synopsis

Synopsis

The Luftwaffe, honed in the Spanish Civil War, played a vital part in Germany's 'Blitzkrieg' victories during the 1939-41 period of World War II. Badly overstretched by war on three fronts in 1942-44, it was crippled by an incompetent commander-in-chief, the losses among experienced aircrew, and shortage of fuel. In 1944-45 it faced a final battle of attrition in skies ruled by the Allies as the Eastern and Western pincers closed on the Reich; but until the very end the dwindling band of veteran pilots - among them the greatest 'aces' the world has ever known - presented a potent threat. This fact-packed review of Luftwaffe uniforms and flying kit is illustrated with rare personal photos, insignia charts, and two dozen meticulously detailed colour figures.
Praise

Praise

"Modelers, re-enactors and historians alike will appreciate this book by Robert F. Stedman... It is a wealth of detail about clothing and gear... Mr. Stedman...extenuates the academic with additional facts beyond the obvious... Your eye for detail will be busy." -Fred Boucher, Aeroscale
