Luftwaffe Fighter Force

Luftwaffe Fighter Force

“A fascinating book” of thirty-four debriefings given by pilots and flight crew members—including the legendary German fighter ace Adolf Galland (HistoryOfWar.org). The Nazi air force pilot and crew members featured in this unusual collection divulge what was once highly-confidential information—including fighter tactics, aircraft technology and operations, and chain of command. Along with maps and diagrams, thirty rarely seen photographs are included featuring uniformed Luftwaffe officers, close-up shots of fighter planes, and the areas where the planes were authorized to carry out their missions. This unique volume was compiled by acclaimed military historian David C. Isby and is extraordinarily comprehensive. To make it, Isby poured over accounts of the war given by members of the Luftwaffe shortly after the events they describe. Much of the information in the book has been shared for the first time, and, after a limited run, is finally back in print. “If you’re a student of page-turning pilot memoirs from World War 2, this is a vital reference for understanding how the Luftwaffe’s pilots functioned—and why. Regardless of whose story you’re following, knowing how the opposing pilots came into each encounter will only enrich your appreciation of the outcome.”—Airscape
