The Second World War may be long over, but the images remain... This is World War Two like you ve never seen it before through the eyes of ordinary British and German people as they experienced it; through the lenses of their home movie cameras. Some of these amateur film enthusiasts were soldiers who took their cameras to the front line and filmed men at war; others who stayed at home recorded everyday life on the home front. Juxtaposed with the punishing but monotonous grind of life on the home front, in the barracks and in the front line, the real horror of war is encapsulated on a visceral level, from a uniquely human perspective. The Men The films of four men who chose to shoot film, as well as at the enemy, on the Western and Eastern fronts, in the battle of Stalingrad and even the D-Day landings. Their footage of friends, enemies and POWs capture both the humanity and inhumanity of war... The Women Films from either side of the divide describe the lot of women embroiled in war as workers, mothers and, for the first time, fighters and capture the utter destitution of the struggle to survive in the aftermath of raids from the RAF and Luftwaffe blitzkrieg ... The Children What the children experienced is captured in films shot by parents, friends and school teachers. Those looking back through the films of their childhood recall the impact of Hitler on them: the evacuations; the terror of the Jewish children; and the sorrow of post-war poverty as their parents were forced to sell even their toys....for bread. These remarkable amateur films and the stories of the fighting men, women and children in them, take us into the heart of the wartime experiences of ordinary people and show us how they survived these extraordinary times

RAF Fighters vs Luftwaffe Bombers
15,71 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

A fully illustrated analysis of the desperate aerial combats between defending RAF fighters and attacking Luftwaffe bombers during the Battle of Britain, ideal for any enthusiast of aerial warfare during World War II. The Battle of Britain was a fight for survival against a seemingly unstoppable foe. With the German army poised to invade, only the fighters of the Royal Air Force stood between Hitler and the conquest of Britain. Losses were high on both sides, but the Spitfires, Hurricanes, Havocs, and Defiants of the RAF began to take their toll on the overextended, under-protected Kampfgruppen of Heinkel He 111s, Junkers Ju 87s and 88s, and Dornier Do 17s. Both sides learned and adapted as the campaign went on. As the advantage began to shift from the Luftwaffe to the RAF, the Germans were forced to switch from round-the-clock bombing to only launching night-raids, often hitting civilian targets in the dreaded Blitz. This beautifully illustrated study dissects the tactics and technology of the duels in this new kind of war, bringing the reader into the cockpits of the RAF fighters and Luftwaffe bombers to show precisely where the Battle of Britain was won and lost.

Combat Crew: The Story of 25 Combat Missions ov...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

John Comer kept a journal of the 25 missions he flew in 1943, when the casualty rate on his base was close to 80 percent. His book is handwritten history, recorded within hours after the battles occurred. Comer vividly creates his experiences as top-turret gunner/flight engineer in a B-17 squadron that was thrown against the best pilots the Luftwaffe could offer. In 1943 the army air force had no long-range fighters to protect the B-17s as they flew deep into enemy territory. Immediate, straightforward, and compelling, Combat Crew is a classic of aerial warfare. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Patrick Lawlor. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/tant/004719/bk_tant_004719_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

Jagdgeschwader 301/302 "Wilde Sau": In Defense ...
42,64 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Jagdgeschwader 301 and 302 were established in 1943. Their mission was to intercept enemy bombers at night flying fast single-engined fighters. But they also had to engage Allied bombers by day. The pilots of these new fighter wings were a mix of former bomber pilots and trained fighter pilots a unique composition for the Luftwaffe. Night missions required good instrument training, like that given to bomber pilots. The fighter pilots were more familiar with the available aircraft and combat tactics. A former fighter pilot himself, Willi Reschke describes the difficulties of crossing over from day to night fighting and vice-versa. He describes the difficult missions flown by JG 301/JG 302 and the fates of their pilots, providing the first chronicle of the Wilde Sau Geschwader.

Me 262 vs P-51 Mustang
15,71 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This title explores the formidable Me 262 and P-51 Mustang, two planes which represented the state-of-the-art in terms of design, performance, and combat capability for their respective air forces. Arguably two of the finest fighters built during the course of World War II, the Me 262 and P-51 Mustang heralded new dawns in aircraft performance. Making its operational debut in the summer of 1944, and powered by the Jumo 004 jet engine, the Me 262 outclassed Allied planes in terms of speed and firepower ratio, offering a formidable punch with four 30 mm MK 108 nose-mounted cannons. However, in the P-51, fitted with the Rolls-Royce (Packard) Merlin engine and drop-tanks, the USAAF finally had a fighter that had the "legs" to escort its heavy bombers deep into Reich airspace and back. If flown to its strengths, the P-51 was more than capable of taking on the feared Me 262 on an equal footing, despite the differences in power and top speed. Indeed, the Mustang proved to be the Luftwaffe fighter arm's nemesis. When the P-51D sortied over Germany from the summer of 1944 onwards, it shredded through the ill-trained and depleted Gruppen of the Luftwaffe's defense wings. This book examines the two fighters in detail, exploring their history and development and containing accurate descriptions of the combats between the P-51 Mustang and the Me 262 in what were some of the most bitter and large-scale aerial actions fought over Europe in 1944--45.
