Profiles all major personalities of the Luftwaffe

Recounts the Luftwaffe in combat

Character-based study of why the German air force was defeated
From its secret post–World War I beginnings to its virtual destruction by the Allied air forces, the story of the German air force is best told by examining its leaders. Brilliant, ambitious, ruthless, and deceitful men like Hermann Goering, the drug-addicted Luftwaffe commander; Erhard Milch, the half-Jewish head of aircraft production; and Adolf Galland, the general of fighters who often clashed with Goering.
The author profiles these principals and others while describing the Luftwaffe’s battles-both in the skies and behind the scenes and explaining why it was so decisively defeated.
