Overview
-

Whether providing support for the blitzkrieg in Poland and France, bombing British cities and industrial centers, or attacking Allied fighters and bombers in the light of day and dark of night, the Luftwaffe revolutionized aerial warfare and experienced some of World War II's most harrowing combat. For the pilots who carried out these missions, every flight meant possible death and certain danger. Franz Kurowski puts readers in the cockpit with seven of these men--three day-fighter, one night-fighter, one close-support, and two bomber pilots--who were among the most successful ever to take to the skies.
