Germany’s air force, the Luftwaffe, played a critical role in the Third Reich’s victories in the early part of World War II, providing the airborne component of the German forces’ irresistible Blitzkrieg (“lightning war”) tactics that swept all armies before it from 1939 to 1942.
Broken down by campaign and key battles within each theater of war, Order of Battle: German Luftwaffe in World War II illustrates the strengths and organizational structures of the Third Reich’s air force, building into a detailed compendium of information. Full-color order of battle tree diagrams at Luftflotten, Gruppe, Fliegerkorps and squadron level help the reader quickly understand how and where bomber (Kampfgeschwader), fighter (Jagdgeschwader), dive-bomber (Stukageschwader), and reconnaissance (Aufklärungsgruppe) units were employed. Quick reference tables provide unit strengths, aircraft types, and base locations, while profile diagrams show typical numbers of aircraft at squadron level.

The Heinkel He 111 was the most recognizable German bomber aircraft of World War 2. This book forms a heavyweight study of its development and operational history, exploring the many variants of this famous and long-serving Luftwaffe bomber aircraft. The text is illustrated by several hundred rare photographs, manufacturer's handbook data, scale line drawings and specially commissioned color artwork.
The He 111 was a mainstay of the Luftwaffe bomber force. Rugged and flexible, it first saw operational deployments in the Spanish Civil War with the Legion Condor in the late 1930s, and subsequently in World War 2. It was used on every single battle front, from the early Blitzkrieg campaigns of 1939/40 through to the Mediterranean and the vast theater that was Russia. The appeal of the He 111 as a combat aircraft -especially to modellers- is due to its widely dispersed service and as such, its variants and the wide array of armament and equipment with which they were fitted as well as their various markings and camouflage schemes are covered.
