Battle For The Airfields Jan 22, 2006
Section 2 Vol 2 of the Jagdwaffe series covers Phase 2 of the Battle of Britain. The book largely covers Aldertag and the battle for the airfields up to the period of September 6th. The books includes many magnificent photos (including downed Messerschmitts BF109s over English soil) and colour profiles as well as giving a good brief account of the daily fighting. The section concludes with the Luftwaffe slowing gaing the upper hand with British Fighter Command resources strained to the limit (especially that of its pilots). However this had come at a heavy price and had taken far longer than anticipated due to incorrect German intelligence. The book does show that the battle was furiously and hard fought and at this stage of the battle, victory was perhaps within the Luftwaffe's grasp.
The book also includes some individual pilot accounts of the battle and also includes a brief biography on Adolf Galland. This is yet another excellent book in the excellent Jagdwaffe series.
