This is both the only and definitive account of the rise and fall of a crucial arm of the German military machine from the first blitzkreig on Poland through the Battle of Britain to the final desperate stand over Germany. Bekker has drawn on official German archives and collections, combat journals and personal papers of leading officers and much other material unavailable outside Germany. The result is an astonishingly vivid account of a battle of wits and technology that inexorably tilted control of the skies away from the Third Reich. By the time the first jet fighters - the ME 262 - were designed neither the pilots to man them, nor the industry to make them, nor the oil fields to fuel them were available. The bombers and fighters of the Allies commanded the skies of the Reich. This is the story from the German side of how the most powerful air force in Europe was reduced to impotence in six years. It throws much new light on the Second World War. The lessons and methods of the war in the air remain to this day a matter of huge controversy.

The result of over twenty years of meticulous research, this two volume work will transform our knowledge of the Luftwaffe's battle to defend the cities of the Reich from night attack. It has previously been assumed that no detailed history of the night battles could ever be compiled because so much information had been lost at the end of the war, but Dr Boiten has succeeded where others failed. During his research Dr Boiten has analysed and cross referenced many sources, mostly unpublished, and some from private collections never seen by researchers before. For the first time the picture of each major raid has been compiled as seen from both the Luftwaffe and RAF view, each night's activity is detailed and each of the more than 6,000 night fighter claims listed. Importantly it has been possible to conclusively identify the victors and victims of the majority of combats, a thing previously considered impossible in all but a few cases. This has been made possible by accurately locating the crash sites of most of the fallen bombers through newly discovered Luftwaffe documents, again significantly improving on previously available material.

Bomber Command's campaign started on the very first day of the Second World War and ended within a few hours of the final victory in Europe five and a half years later. It was an attempt to win the war in Europe by strategic bombing on such an enormous scale that historians have only recently begun to piece together the finer details of the individual raids.??There have been many books about Bomber Command, but Martin Middlebrook, the aviation historian, and his research colleague, Chris Everitt, were the first to compile a complete review of all the raids and the background stories to this fascinating campaign. They undertook the gargantuan task not only of documenting every Bomber Command operation but also of obtaining information from local archives in Germany, Italy and the occupied countries, on the effects of the raids. Little of this material had been published previously, and never before had the two sides of Bomber Command's war been brought together in this way.??The Bomber Command War Diaries has become the standard basic work of reference on this extraordinary campaign. This edition includes retrospective observations and a new appendix.

Volume two takes the JG26 from the beginning of 1943, when the American 8th Air Force first began to make its presence felt over occupied Europe, until the end of the war"--Publisher's description.
