{detailed description}The Luftwaffe Data Book is the reference book that anyone interested in World War II aviation should have to hand.
This single volume is a valuable source book presenting a remarkable range of data, from the organisation of the Luftwaffe High Command to details of unit identification markings on aircraft. The strengths, serviceability states and equipment of front-line units are given at seven key dates between September 1939 and April 1945. This allows the reader to observe the changing strengths and compositions in each major theatre of operations at the decisive moments of the war.
Based on the Luftwaffe Handbook 1939-1945 (Originally published by Ian Allan in 1977 and long out of print), it has been fully revised and extended to almost double the original length by aviation historian Alfred Price. Amongst the many valuable items it includes are details of the Luftwaffe's structure, biographies of senior commanders and the operational tactics of the different units and arms of the service. It also describes the Flak units, which have previously received little coverage, deals with the V.1 flying bomb and the ground organisation that supported it and analyses the aces' victory scores. A full critical bibliography is given, making this book the key to further study and understanding of the Luftwaffe.
