New book, 320 pages. From the ashes of a shattered nation in 1918, the German Air Force rose again. The climax of the campaign in the west in 1940 - when the Luftwaffe was to play a vital role - can now be seen at the zenith of the fortunes and strengths. But the victories won during 1939-40 were as nothing to those won over the previous twenty years, as Germany overcame the restrictions that had been imposed by the treaty of Versailles. This book, the product of much new research in military archives in Germany, France and Britain, tells the story of how Germany came to develop the Luftwaffe. Here are the secret years of German aviation up to 1935, when even the German government was misled as to the existence of training programmes, while barely any effort was made to meet the Armistice demands. The story of the Luftwaffe from creation to victorious justification in war is vividly told here for the first time in detail and in one volume. It is a fasinating insight into a unique period of military aviation, as tactics and technology raced each other, set against the background of rearmement and resurgent German militarism in the years before and during the initial campaigns of World War Two.
