Luftwaffe Flak and Field Divisions 1939-1945 (Images of
From the outset of WW2, Gőring’s Luftwaffe Flak units saw extensive fighting with their 2cm, 3.7cm and deadly 8.8cm anti-aircraft guns. By the time of Hitler’s invasion of Russia, Luftwaffe ground forces had been expanded and were being used in both the army support and air roles.After initial success on the Eastern Front turned to stalemate and huge losses, Hitler ordered the raising of Luftwaffe Field Divisions to bolster the Army. These were initially under Gőring’s command but in late 1943 were handed over to the Army and reorganized as standard infantry divisions (of three two-battalion rifle regiments) retaining Luftwaffe designations. The most famous was the elite Hermann Gőring Divisions, which was reorganized as a Panzer Division.By 1944 there were no less than twenty-one Luftwaffe Field Divisions plus many similar regiments, fighting on all fronts. Of all German anti-tank weapons, the 8.8cm gun was the most feared and destructive.This book describes the evolution of this unique element of the Nazi war machine by means of clear text and superb images.

Flak: German Anti-Aircraft Defenses,
Air raid sirens wail, searchlight beams flash across the sky, and the night is aflame with tracer fire and aerial explosions, as Allied bombers and German anti-aircraft units duel in the thundering darkness. Such "cinematic" scenes, played out with increasing frequency as World War II ground to a close, were more than mere stock material for movie melodramas. As Edward Westermann reveals, they point to a key but largely unappreciated aspect of the German war effort that has yet to get its full due.Long the neglected stepchild in studies of World War II air campaigns, German flak or anti-aircraft units have been frequently dismissed by American, British, and German historians (and by veterans of the European air war) as ineffective weapons that wasted valuable material and personnel resources desperately needed elsewhere by the Third Reich. Westermann emphatically disagrees with that view and makes a convincing case for the significant contributions made by the entire range of German anti-aircraft defenses.During the Allied air campaigns against the Third Reich, well over a million tons of bombs were dropped upon the German homeland, killing nearly 300,000 civilians, wounding another 780,000, and destroying more than 3,500,000 industrial and residential structures.

Flak 88 Owners' Workshop Manual: 8.8cm Flugzeugabwehrkanone (Models 18/36/37/41) (Haynes
The 8.8cm Flugzeugabwehrkanone 18/36/37/41 - more popularly known as the ‘Flak 88’ - was one of the most successful and influential artillery gun types in the German arsenal in the Second World War. Developed during the 1920s and 1930s, the gun combined accuracy, a high muzzle velocity and a rapid rate of fire (15–20rpm). Although at first developed as an anti-aircraft gun, it went on to achieve equal repute as an anti-tank weapon, imposing horrific casualties on Allied armor across all major European and North African theaters of war. In one clash in Normandy, in June 1944, for example, a single Luftwaffe 8.8cm battery destroyed some 40 Allied tanks.

One of the most famous and celebrated Royal Air Force documentaries, "Target for Tonight" follows the crew of the Wellington bomber F for Freddie during a nighttime raid on Freihausen, Germany. Starring a real-life R.A.F. crew, the film is a stirring portrait of heroism during the early days of the Allied air campaign. The film won an honorary Academy Award(tm) in 1942, and was voted Best Documentary by the National Board of Review in 1941. While the British bombed at night, the American Eighth Air Force struck during the day. Exposed to German fighters and flak, the Mighty Eighth endured huge losses before victory was secured. The fight is chronicled in "Target Germany!" which features B-17s, B-24 Liberators and their P-47 Thunderbolt, P-51 Mustang and P-38 Lightning escorts. Also included in this special edition DVD is a .pdf of the original Target for Tonight brochure from 1942. It can be accessed using any computer with a DVD drive. Digitally remastered from original 16mm film prints. Please note: due to the age and rarity of source materials, image and sound quality can vary.
