Title: The Life and Death of the
Author: Werner Baumbach - General of Bombers
Publisher: The Noontide Press
Werner Baumbach, a young and succesful bomber pilot,
quickly rose to the rank of Generalderkampflieger (General
of Bombers) much like Adolf Galland did as his fighter
counterpart. As a first hand eye witness to the rise and
demise of the bomber arm of Luftwaffe, he clearly showns
the Luftwaffe's inner political struggles, design and
production difficulties and childish mistakes done by the
men on very top of Third Reich.
Usually forgotten in the shadow of fighters, this book is highly recommended for Luftwaffe enthusiast.
I bought this book from EBAY at a trivial price. I have checked Barnes and Noble for the retail price. It is out of stock at the time of this review. It regularly shows up on EBAY anyway.
