Item description for Jagdwaffe Volume 4, Section 2: The Mediterranean 1942-1943 (Luftwaffe Colours) by Jean-Louis Roba & Martin Pegg...
200 photographs, 25 full-color aircraft profiles plus maps, tables andnumerous first-hand accounts.Rommel's advance into Egypt forced the Allies to retreat to the El Alamein defenses. As the British Eighth Army prepared for a massive offensive, there followed a period of stalemate on the ground, but in the air the Luftwaffe was faced with a numerically superior force. Luftwaffe's fighter units, outnumbered and continually starved of supplies, fought on in support of Rommel's final battles in North Africa and against the vital British island fortress of Malta. Eventually forced to transfer units from an already critical situation on the Russian Front, German fighter pilots faced growing Allied air power but achieved some outstanding successes, and for a while the battle for Malta hung in the balance. German and Italian forces in North Africa were eventually defeated by superior Allied forces, ULTRA intelligence and the 'Torch' landings. This 96-page title tells the story of the German fighter force in North Africa from the El Alamein offensive inOctober 1942 to final defeat in Tunisia in May 1943.
