Description

John Killen's exhaustive work is a study of German air power between 1915 and 1945, from the early days of flying to the nightmare existence of the Luftwaffe, as the Third Reich plunged headlong to destruction. Here are the aircraft: the frail biplanes and tri-planes of the Kaiser's war; the great Lufthansa aircraft and airships of the turbulent thirties; the monoplanes designed to help Hitler in his conquest of Europe. Here are the generals who forged the air weapon of the Luftwaffe and the pilots who tried to keep faith with the Fatherland despite overwhelming odds.
