Overview
 
Christophe Cony, Jean-Louis Roba. Initially the Luftwaffe ruled the skies but thereafter fought an increasingly futile war of attrition which when combined with vital strategic mistakes in aircraft production, was its death knell.Despite this the Luftwaffe produced the most successful air aces of all time who feature in this volume. Among many remarkable images we see one of the last Junkers 87 B-2 operational on the front line on the Eastern Front during the winter of 1942-1943, the huge BV 222 V-5 of Lufttransportstaffel in the port of Heraklion in late 1942, pilots in Tunisia in 1943, the aces Hans Philipp, Wolfgang Spate and Heinz Schnaufer and a vivid demonstration of the reversal in fortunes in 1944 as Allied bombers destroy 106 places, engulfing them in fire atSchwabisch-Hall on German soil. A companion to Luftwaffe in Color Volume 1, which covered thevictory years from 1939 up to Spring 1942. Illustrated with nearly 400 images, more fascinating material on the machines of the Luftwaffe and the men who flew them, as their fate took an increasingly grim path. English Text.; 160 pages.
