HOW THE RAF AND USAAF BEAT THE LUFTWAFFE
Examines the main campaigns in which the RAF - and later the Allies - faced the Luftwaffe and argues that by the latter part of 1942 the Luftwaffe was no longer a decisive strategic or even tactical weapon. While remarkably resilient, the Luftwaffe was on a continual slide to ultimate destruction. Examines its demise by way of defective strategic planning from its inception, failure to provide decisive results over Britain in 1940 and over the Mediterranean and Desert in 1941-1942, and its failure to defend the Reich and the occupied countries against the Allied bomber offensive. Details numerous aspects to these failures, including equipment (aircraft and weapons), tactics, leadership (political and military), logistics, morale, and more.1 vol, 256 pgs 2021 UK, GREENHILL BOOKS
