Description

Between 1940 and 1943 the Luftwaffe was kept busy in Malta, Greece, Yugoslavia, Crete, Italy, Sicily, Egypt, Libya and Tunisia. Although it achieved a great deal of success, it was hampered by the constant demand for men and machines elsewhere and by logistic problems, including a crippling lack of fuel. The harsh desert conditions in North Africa also caused problems, although some of the Luftwaffe's top aces, most notable among them Hans-Joachim Marseille, emerged in this theatre. This book illustrates the German and Italian aircraft used and developed here as well as the people involved, to give a fascinating perspective on the Luftwaffe at war in North Africa and the Mediterranean.
