PHEONIX TRIUMPHANT The Rise and Rise of the Luftwaffe
318 pages, 112 photographs
From the ashes of a shattered nation in 1918, the German Air Force rose again. This book, the product of much new research in military archives in Germany, France and Britain, tells the story of how Germany came to develop the Luftwaffe. Here are the secret years of German aviation up to 1935, when even the German government was misled as to the existence of training programmes, while barely any effort was made to meet the Armistice demands.
