Eagles of the Third Reich: Men of the Luftwaffe in WW II
- Eagles of the Third Reich: Men of the Luftwaffe in WWII - Samuel W. Mitcham Jr [epub]
Character-based study of why the German air force was defeatedRecounts 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 Göring, the Luftwaffe commander; Erhard Milch, the half-Jewish head of aircraft production; and Adolf Galland, the general of fighters who often clashed with Göring. 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.
