Item description for Bomber Units of the Luftwaffe 1933-45: A Reference Source Volume 2 by Stankey...

This book's authors are well-known and highly respected as experts in their field and have spent some 20 years compiling this most comprehensive, detailed history and listing of all the Luftwaffe's bomber units. This is the second volume that covers some of the 50 bomber Geschwader, together with their component Staff flights and Gruppen. The books cover pre-war formation, designation and reorganization, and continue through to the end of the war, with locations, bases, and transfers together with an exhaustive breakdown of theatres of operations, key battles and missions flown, and aircraft types that were flown by each unit. In addition there are comprehensive listings of unit commanders and when and often where they were in command.
Profusely illustrated with a large number of previously unpublished photographs depicting bomber aircraft in their unit markings with, wherever possible, close-ups of the unit emblems and badges, of which many are color. In addition, the book contains unique photographs of many of the unit commanders.

Reviews - What do customers think about Bomber Units of the Luftwaffe 1933-45: A Reference Source Volume 2?

Misleading Title and Description  Apr 8, 2008
The title of this book states "1933-1945" but there is no information in this book prior to 1939.

The description states "During the interwar years" and "From Spain to Barbarossa". Yet I found no mention of operations in Spain nor any information prior to 1939.

21 K.G. (KG 1 thru KG 60) are covered in this volume and each sub formation has information on when they were formed and trained, followed by a breakdown by campaign with listings of the operations they made, the type of aircraft flown and the Kommandeur(s). This is nice detail on what each formation attacked and when. (to get this information would be the only serious reason for buying this book)

There are numerous good photos.

I appreciate that sources are well documented and recommendations made for other source books (most appear to be in German).
