Aus Anlass ihres 60. Geburtstages widmete sich die Luftwaffe bei ihrer 5. Militärhistorischen Tagung der Organisations-, Mentalitäts- und Einsatzgeschichte der Flugabwehrraketentruppe. Dieser war zu Zeiten der Blockkonfrontation bis 1990 "Immer im Einsatz". Eingebunden in die "NATO Integrated Air Defence" war die FlaRak dabei in hohem Maße als NATO Command Forces bereits in Friedenszeiten in hohem Maße das Bündnis integriert. Sie stand nicht allein, sondern leistete ihren Dienst dabei im engen Verbund mit anderen Dienstteilbereichen der Luftwaffe sowie den Alliierten. Ergänzt wird der Band durch weitere Beiträge zur Luftverteidigung der NATO sowie andere Facetten der nunmehr sechs Jahrzehnte andauernden Geschichte der fliegenden Teilstreitkraft der Bundeswehr. Die Herausgeber sind als Historiker der Luftwaffe in Forschung und Lehre tätig.

First to Fight

'This deeply researched, very well-written and penetrating book will be the standard work on the subject for many years to come' - Andrew Roberts, author of Churchill: Walking with Destiny The Second World War began on 1 September 1939, when German tanks, trucks and infantry crossed the Polish border, and the Luftwaffe began bombing Poland's cities. The Polish army fought bravely but could not withstand an attacker superior in numbers and technology; and when the Red Army invaded from the east - as agreed in the pact Hitler had concluded with Stalin - the country's fate was sealed. Poland was the first to fight the German aggressor; it would be the first to suffer the full murderous force of Nazi persecution. By the end of the Second World War, one in five of its people had perished. The Polish campaign is the forgotten story of the Second World War. Despite prefacing many of that conflict's later horrors - the wanton targeting of civilians, indiscriminate bombing and ethnic cleansing - it is little understood, and most of what we think we know about it is Nazi propaganda, such as the myth of Polish cavalry charging German tanks with their lances. In truth, Polish forces put up a spirited defence, in the expectation that they would be assisted by their British and French allies. That assistance never came. First to Fight is the first history of the Polish war for almost half a century. Drawing on letters, memoirs and diaries by generals and politicians, soldiers and civilians from all sides, Roger Moorhouse's dramatic account of the military events is entwined with a tragic human story of courage and suffering, and a dark tale of diplomatic betrayal.

RAF Fighter Command

High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Fighter Command was one of three functional commands that dominated the public perception of the Royal Air Force for much of the mid-20th century. It was formed in 1936 to reflect the fact that as the RAF expanded prior to World War II, more specialised control of each type of aircraft: fighter, bomber and maritime patrol was needed. On 20 May 1926, Fighter Command's precursor organization was established as a group within Inland Area. On 1 June 1926, Fighting Area (as it was then called) was transferred to the Air Defence of Great Britain. Fighting Area was raised to Command status in 1932 and renamed Fighter Command on 1 May 1936. Over the next few years, the Command expanded greatly and replaced its obsolescent biplane squadrons with two of the most famous aircraft ever to fly with the RAF, the Hawker Hurricane and the Supermarine Spitfire. The supreme test of Fighter Command came during the summer of 1940 when the German Luftwaffe launched an offensive aimed at attaining air superiority over the Channel and the UK as a prerequisite to the launch of a seaborne invasion force (codenamed Operation Sealion).

Battle of Sedan (1940)

High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! The Battle of Sedan or Second Battle of Sedan was a decisive battle fought during the Battle of France during the Second World War. The battle was part of the German Wehrmacht's battle plan to encircle the Allied Armies in Belgium and north-eastern France. The German Army Group A crossed the Meuse river with the intention of capturing Sedan and pushing northwards towards the channel coast, in order to entrap the Allied Forces that were advancing east into Belgium, as part of the Allied Dyle Plan strategy. The initial assault was spearheaded by the Luftwaffe. Owing to the bombing and low morale, the French defenders broke down psychologically and were unable to mount a coherent defence. The Germans captured the Meuse bridges at Sedan allowing them to pour reinforcements and armour across the river on 14 May. The Allied Air Forces, the Royal Air Force (RAF) and Armée de l'Air (French Air Force) tried to destroy the bridges only to be prevented by German aerial resistance leading to very high losses and the breaking of the Allied bomber strength in the campaign.
