OF THE LUFTWAFFE 1933-1945:
A Reference Source Volume 2
By Henry L. de Zeng IV & Douglas G. Stankey
This book's authors are well-known and highly respected as experts in their field and have spent some 20 years compiling this most comprehensive, detailed history and listing of all the Luftwaffe's bomber units. This is the second volume that covers some of the 50 bomber Geschwader, together with their component Staff flights and Gruppen. The books cover pre-war formation, designation and reorganization, and continue through to the end of the war, with locations, bases, and transfers together with an exhaustive breakdown of theatres of operations, key battles and missions flown, and aircraft types that were flown by each unit. In addition there are comprehensive listings of unit commanders and when â€“ and often where â€“ they were in command.
Profusely illustrated with a large number of previously unpublished photographs depicting bomber aircraft in their unit markings with, wherever possible, close-ups of the unit emblems and badges, of which many are color. In addition, the book contains unique photographs of many of the unit commanders.
Hardcover, 9" x 12", 208 pages, 400 b+w and color photographs.
