Eagles Over the Sea 1943-45: A History of Luftwaffe Maritime Operations (Hardcover)
usually available in 5-10 days
This is the second volume of Lawrence Paterson�s detailed account of all the Luftwaffe�s naval operations during World War II. The first volume took the story up to 1942, and by the end of that year Hermann G�ring�s Reich Air Ministry had subsumed nearly every aspect of Wehrmacht maritime aviation. Kriegsmarine attempts to develop an independent Fleet Air Arm had been perpetually frustrated, reflecting the chaotic nature of the Third Reich�s internal military and political mechanics. Driven more by vanity than operational prudence, the Luftwaffe had continually thwarted the advancement of maritime aviation, and by 1942 began to reap the whirlwind it had created.
Heavily illustrated throughout, this detailed and exciting narrative will be of huge appeal to both naval and aviation historians and enthusiasts.
