It ensured that whatever was decided in the Reich's Chancellery, and whatever was done in the front line and in the factories, defeat wouild result. In this, the first detailed, comprehensive history of the Luftwaffe since 1946, Matthew Cooper describes the disintegration of its high command and the disastrous leadership of Göring. He analyses the development of the Luftwaffe's strategy, and with it its aircraft, and its decisions regarding dive bombing, heavy bombers and jet fighters. He describes the Luftwaffe's campaigns and shows clearly how from the moment it was committed to battle in 1939 it was doomed to failure in any prolonged world war. With hindsight it is possible to see that its one chance of avoiding defeat lay in destroying the RAF in the summer of 1940 and this book carefully analyses just why, when it was within an ace of success, the Luftwaffe gave victory to its enemies.

Although the campaign through Italy is perhaps overshadowed by the more dramatic battles in France and on the Eastern Front, it was a crucial phase of the war, forcing Hitler's Italian allies out of the war and tying huge numbers of men and vast quantities of German equipment down at a time when Axis needs were at their greatest elsewhere. From the first landings at Sicily, through the allied landings in southern Italy and the war of attrition as the Allies marched northwards to the surrender of the Italian forces and the ultimate German capitulation, Allied air power was to be of crucial importance. This book is a comprehensive narrative to the conflict from 1943 until the final German surrender of 1945. Drawn from official sources and from detailed research, the book emphasises the importance of the air war to the ultimate Allied success. The well-informed text is complemented by a superb selection of historic photographs illustrating the various types of aircraft involved in the campaign and of the campaign itself.

Due to the failure of the day campaign during what has become known as the Battle of Britain, on 7 September 1940, the Luftwaffe commenced bombing London and major cities, predominantly by night. What became known as the Blitz continued until 10 May 1941 with many towns and cities across the country being attacked and London being attacked 57 nights in succession. By the end of May 1941, over 43,000 civilians, half of them in London, had been killed by bombing and more than a million houses destroyed or damaged in London alone. The Blitz failed to break the morale of the British people and any thoughts of a German invasion were cancelled with German attention quickly being transferred to the Soviet Union. Accordingly, the intensity of the attacks against mainland Britain lessened considerably. Much has been written about the Blitz from a British perspective but The Luftwaffe's Blitz tells the story from the viewpoint of the German aircrew involved, many of whom were shot down and taken prisoner. Using over 30 first hand accounts and previously unpublished photos, The Luftwaffe's Blitz details the Luftwaffe's assault against the United Kingdom in 1941, covering the major attacks and those that occurred during the remaining months of that year. Integrated with accounts from the aircrew of RAF's embryonic night fighter force as they fought against the Luftwaffe night after night in very difficult and sometimes primitive circumstances, this book provides a new perspective on the Blitz from the attacker's point of view.

In 1923, the multitude of British railway companies merged into four large groups; two of these had lines in Scotland. They, the LMS and the LNER, were to have a profound affect on transport north of the border. The two "super companies" provided the Scottish public with rail services through the violence of the 1926 General Strike, the streamlined glamour of the 1930s, and the bombs and blackout of the Second World War.
