Germany's air force, the Luftwaffe, played a critical role in the Third Reich's victories in the early part of World War II, providing the airborne component of the German forces' irresistible Blitzkrieg ("lightning war") tactics that swept all armies before it from 1939 to 1942. Broken down by campaign and key battles within each theater of war, Order of Battle: German Luftwaffe in World War II illustrates the strengths and organizational structures of the Third Reich's air force, building into a detailed compendium of information. Full-color order of battle tree diagrams at Luftflotten, Gruppe, Fliegerkorps and squadron level help the reader quickly understand how and where bomber (Kampfgeschwader), fighter (Jagdgeschwader), dive-bomber (Stukageschwader), and reconnaissance (Aufklarungsgruppe) units were employed. Quick reference tables provide unit strengths, aircraft types, and base locations, while profile diagrams show typical numbers of aircraft at squadron level.
  • “Order of Battle: The Luftwaffe in WWII” by Chris McNab is a useful reference on Luftwaffe operations in the Second World War. The book is organized chronologically starting with the preparations for war, the invasion of Poland, the invasions of Denmark and Norway, and the attack on France and the Low Countries. It then goes on to discuss the Battle of Britain, the war in North Africa and the Mediterranean, the Balkans, and the Eastern Front. Finally, it concludes with chapters on Northwest Europe, Maritime Operations, and the End of the Reich. The book is beautifully illustrated with many organizational charts and orders of battle, maps, tables, color plates, and some photographs. It also has short biographies of key Luftwaffe aces such as Hans-Joachim Marseille and Werner Molders. All total, this is a very useful addition to the literature on the German Air Force, and a book worth owning if you are interested in World War II aviation.

  • Good camo pics were a big surprise.

  • The Luftwaffe was arguably the finest air force in existence during WW11. The us flyers would probably have argued the point, but the german pilots were the very best in the first couple of years in the war. Their planes such as the ME-109, the Focke Wolfe 190 dominated the skies over Europe in the wars early stages. But ReichMarshal Goring's mismanagement of these fine machines, and fine pilots, spelled their eventual doom. They performed quite well in the early stages of the russian campaign, but the study russian designs eventually took over the skies of Russia. The held the advantage in the early going against our B-17s, But with the introduction of our P-51 long range fightern the Luftwaffe pilots and machines were beaten back inti Germany. In the end our bombing campaign destroyed the economic heart of Germany, the Luftwaffe was finished. They gave their all, but their efforts were misplaced and ill used by Hitler.

  • This covers an element of Luftwaffe history, that has not always been easy to locate. A few typos, but generally the data checks well against other sources.

  • This well researched volume is an essential addition
    to the library of anyone serious about the subject of
    the Luftwaffe and the air war in Europe during WWII.
