Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: During World War II the Luftwaffe was the only air force that had extensive practical knowledge of combat against the Soviet armed forces, engaging its numerically superior opponent with some success. After the war the U.S. Historical Research Division set up a project utilising the expertise of senior German officers who had been involved in air operations, in order to benefit from the lessons they had learned. The original document upon which Spearhead for Blitzkrieg is based was written as part of this project, its author having been a commander during the campaign in Russia. General Deichmann drew on his own experience to describe the types of operations that had worked, and, equally importantly, those that had not. For this new edition, eminent aviation authority Dr Alfred Price has completely re-edited the original translation to bring out the salient points. He has also added notes to amplify points made by the author. Buchnummer des Verkäufers
Inhaltsangabe: After World War II, when it became clear that continued friendly relations with the Soviet Union would not be possible and that there was a real possibility that war would break out between the United States and the Eastern Bloc, Western military leaders turned to the only source that had extensive experience fighting against the Red Army: the defeated German military.
The German Luftwaffe was the only air force with extensive combat experience against the Soviet air forces. Illuminated by a vast collection of original source material, and now revised for brevity and clarity, this fascinating book was originally part of a U.S. Air Force historical project initiated after World War II to obtain a complete picture of Germany's war in the air. Here General Deichmann, one of the principal leaders of the Luftwaffe, describes the aerial combat, reconnaissance, and support operations that worked against the Russians and, just as important, those that failed. All phases of the Luftwaffe's organization and maneuvers are included--from its secret rebirth after World War I through its participation in the Spanish Civil War to its massive operations and final defeat in World War II.
With eight pages of photographs.
