{detailed description}Although there are numerous books on the Luftwaffe and German wartime aircraft, German Aircraft Industry and Production 1933-1945 is unique in its approach of examining the actual German aircraft industry. This authoritative book provides much-needed accurate facts and figures, as well as an in-depth historical background of the German aviation industry and the development and production of its aircraft. The fascinating analysis is complemented by photographs, copies of original documents, maps and statistical evidence. The book argues that Germany's defeat in the Second World War was inevitable. The bureaucracy and ineptitude of the German Air Ministry (RLM) and the lack of essential resources, including a shortage of fuel, all limited the efficient mass-production of vital aircraft. Certainly, Allied bombings of the plants also contributed to the disorganisation and created chaos. The book aims to offer the reader a complete picture of this little-known subject.
The result of fifteen years' extensive research, the book contains an amazing ninety per cent of fact and figures that have never previously been published. The authors succeeded in obtaining access to many original RLM documents, and so have a unique insight into the subject. The book also contains the most detailed and up-to-date RLM list ever published, and clearly illustrates with detailed statistical analysis that Germany was not really prepared for the Second World War and that the failures of its aviation industry perpetuated its downfall. It is a unique book that gives a complete insight into the German aircraft industry of the period.
