BOMBER UNITS OF THE LUFTWAFFE 1933-1945, Volume 2: A Reference Source.
- The two authors, who are well-known and highly respected as experts in their field, have spent some twenty years compiling the most comprehensive and detailed history and listing of all the Luftwaffes bomber units. This is the second volume that covers some of the fifty bomber Geschwader, together with their component Staff flights and Gruppen. The books cover pre-war formation, designation and reorganisation and continue through to the end of the war, with locations, bases and transfers together with an exhaustive break down 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 and often where they were in command.
This is the second and final volume of a highly detailed and extraordinarily well researched piece of work, which has never been attempted in such a way before. It is effectively unique and will become a standard reference for enthusiasts, aviation historians and authors.
The book will be profusely illustrated with a large number of unseen photographs depicting bomber aircraft in their unit markings with, wherever possible, close-ups of the unit emblems and badges, of which many could be in colour. In addition the book contains unique photographs of many of the unit commanders.
