Description

Luftwaffe War Diary: Pilots & Aces | Uniforms & Equipment

A visual history of the German air force during WWII. Luftwaffe War Diary contains hundreds of color and B&W images of pilots and crews, aircraft, uniforms, awards, sidearms, and more. Includes Stuka dive-bombers, Messerschmitt Bf 109 fighters, and other planes. A must-have for historians, modelers, World War II buffs, and aviation enthusiasts

This book provides a well illustrated, comprehensive study of ranks, medals, uniforms, personalities and accoutrements of the German Air Force during the 2nd World War.

The section on prominent Luftwaffe fighter aces is based on Col. Raymond F. Toliver’s (Ret.) and Trevor J. Constable’s work Fighter Aces of the Luftwaffe (Aero Publishers 1977).

Legendary German aces like Adolf Galland, Werner Mölders, and Hans Joachim Marseille – the romantic “Star of Africa” are definitely drawn in colorful word portraits. Erich Hartmann and Gerd Barkhorn, the only two fighter aces in history to down more than 300 enemy planes, also leap out of these pages in accurate sketches. Thirty four fighter aces and many of the ace leaders who helped inspire the Luftwaffe fighter force are depicted.

With over 550 photographs, many in color, the reader will appreciate man and machines of a time when skill, courage and the individual man counted and prevailed over overwhelming odds.
