• The air-sea war in the North Atlantic and European theatre from the perspective of the German Air Force and Navy. • Detailed insight into the divisions and tensions within the German command system. • Writings of commanders including Admiral Doenitz and Kontreadmiral Gerhard Wagner The Luftwaffe and the War at Sea provides an unrivaled look at struggle for control of the sea in the European theatre from the point of view of the German offices - Kriegsmarine and Luftwaffe - that fought it. The contributing authors were involved in all aspects of German attempts to control the seas, from the use of Ju-87 Stuka dive-bombers in the invasion of Norway to the missions of FW-200 Kondors in cooperation with the U-boat campaign against Britain's Atlantic lifelines. These reports were either written as secret reports during the war for the benefit of the Oberkommando der Luftwaffe - the Air Force General Staff - or were written immediately after the war when most of the German High Command were prisoners of war or working for the US military. While they lacked the full story of the Allied efforts against them, these reports had the immediacy of either being prepared in wartime or soon afterwards. The book also benefits from having been written specifically for an audience well-versed in naval and aviation affairs: Luftwaffe generals or the US military. The detail contained is unique and allows the reader a fresh perspective on these famous campaigns. David Isby is a renowned military historian. He has edited Fighting the Invasion, Fighting the Breakout, Fighting in Normandy, Fighting the Bombers and The Luftwaffe Fighter Force.
