When Winter Comes: Until the Night, Book 4 , Hö...

ggf. zzgl. Versand

When Winter Comes is the fourth audiobook of the Until the Night series and is set in December 1943. The Until the Night series is about Bomber Command in the winter of 1943 to '44 and follows the experience of Adam Chantrey, a 25-year-old veteran of the Bombing War sent to Ansham Wolds in Lincolnshire to rebuild a shattered Lancaster squadron. Exhausted and tormented by his own demons, he discovers, amidst the chaos of war and loss, love and an unlikely inner peace up on the high wold of Lincolnshire while all around him the world is enveloped in madness.  It is December 1943, and the Lancaster Force has settled into the long, hard slog of razing Berlin from end to end. Raid after raid presses on against the storms of winter and the fury of the gun lines and the fighters guarding the faraway cities on the Saxon plain. The storms that batter the Main Force and the seasonal fog and mist that regularly envelope their bases are enemies as deadly as the Luftwaffe; the time when any man on ops could cling to hope is quickly disappearing.  For Adam Chantrey and his exhausted crews, the odds are ever more stacked against them, but there is no option but to press on. The cause is just even if the means are anything but. Bomber Command is flying towards its collision with destiny, and the battle gets bloodier, it seems, every time the Main Force is hurled against the German cities.  Please be aware - this audiobook is also available in an omnibus edition titled Until the Night, a revised second edition of a previously published title of the same name.  1.

Opposing Forces in the Polish September Campaign
54,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Germany and Poland were the main opposing forces in the Polish September Campaign. Tactics and military hardware used in the Invasion of Poland varied between the two sides, The German economy was geared toward military production which supplied their armed forces with equipment that was often superior to their Polish counterparts. Old tactics such as Vernichtungsgedanke and the concept of the Schwerpunkt combined with newly mechanized units punched holes in Polish lines and close air support provided by the world class Luftwaffe disrupted Polish supply and communications lines. Other German tactics included the targeting of civilian targets in terror bombings to inflict huge losses amongst the civilian population, sending streams of refugees out of afflicted areas, thereby hampering Polish logistics. In 1939 the German navy also had an advantage over the tiny Polish fleet.

Much has been written about the capture of Fort Eben Emael Belgium by German paratroopers, on May 10, 1940. This operation marked the first use of gliders and shaped charges, while proved possible drop paratroopers behind enemy lines. The training, secret, accuracy and speed, in addition to the element of surprise, these men became lethal, causing chaos among Belgian soldiers. However, it should be stressed that these paratroopers were part of a larger group: The Sturmablteilung Koch (Koch Assault Group), the elite of the Luftwaffe in 1940, whose mission was not only to take Eben Emael, but also the three bridges over the Alberto canal near: Veldwezelt, Vroenhoven and Kanne. The success of the attack on Belgium and France would depend on the rapid conquest of those bridges. The aim of this book is to show how it was planned and carried out the assault on the Albert Canal bridges. All this not only through a supported text documents, records and evidence, but also by many photos never published until now. Every detail, from the creation of the Koch Assault Group, until the final attack, has been closely scrutinized by reference to the best sources, as well as testimonies of Belgian and German soldiers. About the authors: Oscar Gonzalez Lopez has a degree in Philosophy and teaches History and Philosophy. As a military historian his research has focused on the Fallschirmjager as well as the Spanish volunteers in the German Army during the Second World War, through close contact with many former veterans. Amongst other books, he has published Fallschirmjager at the Gran Sasso and German Paratroops in Scandinavia. He lives in Spain. Thomas Steinke studied at the Otto-von-Guericke University in Magdeburg, Germany. He takes part in the 'Volksbund Dr. Kriegsgraberfursorge', being involved in the search and care of German War graves of the Second World War, as well as in educational activities whose main goal is to improve the mutual and peaceful understanding amongst the European people. The focus of his studies has long been German paratroopers, in particular the members of the Sturmabteilung Koch and the LL-Sturmregiment. Ian Tannahill holds a Bachelor of Engineering degree from the University of Queensland, Australia, and is a registered patent and trade mark attorney. His interest in the Fallschirmjager was sparked by an article he read as a teenager on the fall of the fortress of Eben Emael. His contact with former German paratroopers ignited a desire within Ian to tell the world about the capture of the Albert Kanal bridges by the Fallschirmjager and glider pilots of Sturmabteilung Koch.

Green, B: Modelling Luftwaffe Jets and Wonder W...
29,90 CHF *
zzgl. 3,50 CHF Versand

While the Allies largely relied on mass production to help them win World War II, Germany put a great deal of their limited resources into new technologies and wonder weapons. Nowhere was this more evident than in some of the revolutionary aircraft developed for the Luftwaffe. By the end of 1944, a number of jet and rocket aircraft were entering front-line service in the roles of high-speed interceptor, fighter, reconnaissance and bomber. In addition to these tangible assets, which were used with varying degrees of success, the drawing boards of Germany were littered with dozens of advanced designs that never reached the prototype or production stages. Many of these operational and paper projects advanced the pace and influenced the direction of aircraft development in the decades following World War II, with many of the German engineers responsible for these innovations seamlessly continuing their roles in the United States and the USSR. Modellers have had a long fascination for the Luftwaffe's jet arsenal and secret weapons of fact and fiction and this new Osprey Masterclass will explore the Luftwaffe jets and rocket planes that saw service at the end of World War II. This title will discuss the background behind these wonder weapons before covering aspects of the aircraft in detail - powerplants, cockpits and ordnance - with photographic walkarounds and modelling guides. Special attention will then be given to the techniques for painting and finishing late-war jets and rocket aircraft, with step-by-step techniques offered for bare metal, puttied panel lines, unfinished plywood and the ever-controversial RLM camouflage colours. Finally, the rocket and missile technologies and the 'Luftwaffe '46' phenomenon will also be covered, with modelers having a particular fascination for these 'what if' aircraft that never saw service but now appear as scale models.
