Luftwaffe 1935 to 1945 An in-depth look
at the German air force (Luftwaffe) during World War II, All
the planes used, such as, Arado Ar 196, Fieseler Fi 103 V-1
flying bomb, Junkers Ju 52 and Messerschmitt Me 262, development
history, combat service, technical information, and pictures.
In 1939 to 1940, the Luftwaffe helped the German army to astonishingly
rapid success in both Eastern and Western Europe, but failed
to win control of the skies over Britain. Later on, despite
its best efforts, it could not prevent the defeat of Germany
either by day, or by night, owing to constant Allied bombing
of Germany's factories and cities by a numerically overwhelming
force of bombers based in England. This was coupled with the
advances of the Soviet armies from the East, as numbers of
available German aircraft dwindled in the face of ever growing
numbers of Soviet aircraft. The Luftwaffe was, however, notable
in putting the world's first jet fighter and the world's only
rocket powered fighter into action during the war.
