Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Character-based study of why the German air force was defeated Recounts the Luftwaffe in combat from the blitzkrieg of 1939-40 and the Battle of Britain to the Eastern Front and the Normandy campaign

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. Mitcham profiles them and others while describing the Luftwaffe's battles--both in the skies and behind the scenes--and explaining why it was so decisively defeated.

Synopsis:

Originally published under the title "Men of the Luftwaffe", "this insightful, well-researched book traces the rise and fall of Hitler's air force from the perspective of its top leaders, concentrating on problems of organization, policy and aircraft production rather than battles and campaigns" ("Publishers Weekly").
