Aviation Elite Units #13: Luftwaffe Schlachtgruppen Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

One of the most important, and yet least publicised, components of the front-line Luftwaffe was the Schlacht, or ground attack, arm. This book details the Schlacht units who were in the thick of the fighting from the first day of the war until the last. They played a vital part in the heady successes of the early Blitzkrieg campaigns and went on to perform an equally essential role in the dark hours of last ditch defence and ultimate defeat. In between, they fought in all defensive battles: on the eastern front at Stalingrad, Kursk and Berlin; in the west, by night, over Normandy, the Ardennes and the Rhine.

The color plate section of the book has profiles of the following, disperate aircraft:

HS 123A

HE 51B

Bf 109-4

Bf 109E

Bf 109E-7

HS 129B

Fw 190F-2

Fiat Cr.42

Fokker CV-E

Ju 87D

All of which were flown by this squadron. Also of note is the fact that this Ace pilot Hans-Ulrich Rudel was part of this distinguished unit.

Synopsis:

The Luftwaffe's elite Schlachtgruppen were Germany's answer to the USAAF's daylight bombing campaign of 1944. This book brings to life what the official USAAF history describes as 'a slugging match between offense and defense, with the side with the most stamina winning by a Knockout'.
