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.

"[These books give] a chronology of the unit's activities, using documentary sources, JG 26 archives and veteran's own stories. Volume one covers the period from 1939 to 1942 and contains interviews with the veterans of the JG26 unit, Allied records, radio intelligence, national archives of Germany, the UK and USAF Historical Research Agency and post-war research, to provide a daily account of the unit's activities-- as only two of the 30 volumes of the unit's official diary survived the war. 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.

Based on the author's personal World War II diary An unflinching look at Luftwaffe combat, tactics, and leadership during the campaign for Sicily A concluding chapter assesses the war's lessons for air forces In an account of unusual power, Luftwaffe ace Johannes Steinhoff recounts the final days of the German air force on Sicily in June and July 1943. Facing crushing odds--including a commander, Hermann Göring, who contemptuously treated his pilots as cowards--Steinhoff and his fellow Messerschmitt 109 pilots took to the skies day after day to meet waves of dreaded Flying Fortresses and swarms of Allied fighters, all bent on driving the Germans from the island. A captivating narrative and a piercing analysis, this book is a classic of aerial combat.

Hitler S Miracle Weapons The Luftwaffe And Kriegsmarine

How close did Hitler come to his dream of developing nuclear weapons? What evidence is there for the design, testing and production of such weapons, and their carrier systems? With this first volume in a series of at least three, Friedrich Georg has begun to answer these questions in great detail. The result is a groundbreaking new book on this topic. This first volume describes the efforts of the Luftwaffe and Kriegsmarine to design and produce carrier-systems for the nuclear weapons the scientists of the Third Reich were developing. Following an introductory section in which the author outlines the Nazi atom bomb programme, Georg then investigates the enormous variety of craft the Luftwaffe began to either adapt, or develop anew, that would be used to carry such weapons of mass destruction. These included the search for an intercontinental 'Amerikabomber', including the innovative Horten Ho XVIII. Lighter designs, such as the Arado Ar E 555, Messerschmitt P 1107 & 1108, and Junkers EF 132 & 140 are also described. The various atom bombs themselves are thoroughly investigated, from the 1-ton to the massive 30-ton variety. Information about the variety of carrier systems being developed-and in at least one case, actually built-by the Kriegsmarine is also provided. Finally, the author investigates the reasons why Germany ultimately failed to produce the atom bomb. Appendices provide the most up-to-date research on a variety of topics, including the small number of craft Japan was developing to carry atom bombs, and the Soviet capture of German nuclear research centres in the Baltic region at the end of the war. Throughout, the author is keen to only rely on the most reliable sources, and lays many myths to rest in the process. The result is a truly compelling and groundbreaking work.
