1 Price, Alfred. LUFTWAFFE HANDBOOK 1939-1945.
Charles Scribner's Sons, New York, 1977. 
111 pp, 9 7/16" H, hard cover in dust jacket. Profusely illustrated in b&w with photographs, maps, drawings, diagrams. "Drawing on sixteen years of research, the author provides an in-depth reference manual on the Luftwaffe at war, a book that mov es with ease from broad analysis to fascinating detail. Several important aspects of the Luftwaffe, often ignored in the past, receive particular emphasis: the working of the flak arm, which at the beginning of World War II engaged almost tw o - t h i r d s of the Luftwaffe's manpower; German pilot training on which the flying units' effectiveness ultimately depended; and tactics used by the various types of fighter and bomber units. Many biographies of senior commanders and illustrati on s of u ni fo rm s and insignia add to the interest of the volume that is an essential addition to the library of any serious student of war history, the aviation enthusiast, and the model airplane maker." Bump at top/bottom of spine, two tiny c orn er bu mps , v ery li ght edge wear. Dust jacket has been price clipped, has light edge wear/wrinkling at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds, soft crease and faint rub line on front panel. Very Good/Very Good-

2 Price, Alfred. PICTORIAL HISTORY OF THE LUFTWAFFE.
Osceola, WI Motorbooks International 1991 0879386401 / 9780879386405 Hard Cover Very Good+ Very Good+ 
168 pp, 10 1/4" H. Profusely illustrated with b&w photographs. "Here was a force that in six short years rose almost from nothing to become the terror of Europe. It was the Luftwaffe that made possible the lightning victories of the German Army during the first three years of the war. Then, gradually but inexorably, the air forces of Germany's enemies became stronger than her own, and the Luftwaffe was forced on to the defensive on each front in turn. Finally, the vast majority of its aircraft grounded for want of fuel, many of its best crews dead or in prison camps, the greater part of it could do no more than sit on the ground and wait for the end to come. But as long as the war lasted the Luftwaffe could never be ignored in the Allied calculations, for to the very end it proved capable of springing uncom- fortable surprises. Here is a step by step history of Hitler's Air Force presented in picture. To re- search the photographs and text, the author visited many of the German senior officers who survived. The result is a unique and objectively precise account of the birth, life and death of the Luftwaffe." Minor wrinkle at top of spine. Dust jacket has minor wrinkling at top/bottom of spine, very small sticker residue on front flap, tiny dent on spine, minor rubbing.
