Description

As Hitler's troops celebrated the conquest of France, the Germans prepared to unleash the largest and most aggressive bomber force in the world on their hapless British enemy. Directing the bulk of their forces against RAF bases in the south of England, the Luftwaffe began a punishing series of daylight raids. In addition Luftwaffe bombers flew against ports and key installations across Britain. By September 1940, the emphasis had switched to attacking London and, from then to the final year of the war, the Luftwaffe bombers--flying by day or by night--were directed against British cities.

Manfred Griehl has drawn on his own valuable archive to prevent rare photographs of the German bombers and their crews. Covering such mainstays of the German arsenal as the He 111s, JU 87Bs, Ju 88A-1s, Do 17Zs, and even Do 217s and He 177A-3s, this major addition to the Luftwaffe at War series is a unique and valuable guide to Germany's bomber force.
