THE LUFTWAFFE IN THE BATTLE OF BRITAIN., Ishoven, Armand van.
3 Ishoven, Armand van. THE LUFTWAFFE IN THE BATTLE OF BRITAIN.
Shepperton Ian Allan 1998 1550680501 / 9781550680508 Reprint Soft Cover Near Fine 
128 pp, 4to (11 3/8" H). Profusely illustrated with b&w photographs. "The Battle of Britain has always been seen as one of the major turning points of the war: the might of the Luftwaffe, devastator of half of Europe, turned towards the beleaguered British Isles to stamp out the RAF and prepare the way for Operation Sea Lion - the first proper invasion of Great Britain since 1066. (The author has) produced a fascinating collection of eyewitness accounts and reports - many produced while the heat of battle was still on the writers - and a staggering number of German photographs, few of which have been published before. All in all it is a dramatic account of what it was like to fight on the other side to 'the few' during the battle of Britain." Interior - clean and tight with no previous ownership marks. Exterior - clean and bright. Fine

West Chester, PA Schiffer 1990 0887402526 / 9780887402524 Hard Cover Very Good Very Good 
278 pp, 4to (11 1/4" H). Profusely illustrated with b&w photographs, reproductions. "Hans-Ulrich Rudel was called 'the Eagle of the Eastern Front'. This pastor's son from Silesia, born in 1916, Colonel and last Commodore of the successful Stuka squadron 'Immelmann', was the only soldier in World War II to receive the highest German decoration for bravery. The Golden Oak Leaves with Swords and Jewels to the Knight's Cross recognized his unique number of superlative achievements. With 2530 combat missions and his total of successes, unbeaten in all times and nations, he stands far in the front of the world's renowned aerial aces. In low-level attacks, often in the heaviest defensive fire, in his slow 'Cannon-bird' he destroyed 519 Soviet tanks - 17 of them on a single day! On the list of scores achieved by this Stuka combat pilot, who became a living legend to the soldiers of the Eastern Front, there stood at war's end, among others, 1 battleship, 1 cruiser, 1 destroyer, 70 landing craft and nine attested aircraft, plus hundreds of motor vehicles, numerous artillery, anti-tank and anti-aircraft postions, as well as armored convoys and bridges. Twelve comrades - six Stuka crews - were saved by him from capture or death. When he tried to rescue another crash-landed crew from Russian territory in 1944, he was taken prisoner, fled with a bullet in his shoulder, covered some 50 kilometers through the Soviet hinterlands, and reached the German lines again. Shortly after this audacious, exhausting flight, the wounded man was flying in combat again. Shot more than thirty times by ground fire - but never once by a fighter plane - wounded five times, the fervent sportsman took a direct anti-aircraft hit on the Odor front and lost his right leg. Just six weeks later the 'Bravest of the Brave', as the soldiers also called him, was flying again despite being forbidden to ---" This is a heavy book and may require extra postage, depending on destination.

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."
