Air Tactics Book - Luftwaffe
Ive noticed in book shops you can buy tactics and stratergy books for various nations on infantry and tanks in various situations but for the life of me I cant find a single one on Air forrces - for any country for WWII.

Any one got any information if such books even exist?


I actually just found some but if anyone knows a good one please let me know.
I just ordered:

Luftwaffe Handbook 1939-1945
Alfred Price


Luftwaffe Fighter Aces: The Jagdflieger and Their Combat Techniques (Greenhill Military Paperback)
Mike Spick

Great photos, it's amazing the material which keeps popping up.

There used to be a WW2 book (by Edward Sims), but it's out of print and second hand copies cost too much.

"Fighter Combat: Tactics and Manoeuvring" by Robert L. Shaw is very good, and gets as technical as anyone other than someone taking a degree in aerodynamics could need.

"Air Combat Manoeuvres: The Technique and History of Air Fighting for Flight Simulation" is more basic, and my edition has one mistake, but it does have pretty pictures.

Mike Spick's book is okay, I haven't read the other one.

Thnaks for the reply Igo kyu,

Im am not so much looking for the best most efficent tatics but the actually tactics they used. I suppose there are no real definate books just on the luftwaffe because they had to adapt and change, however I suspect the main reason is because ariel combat is such a fluid art.

I will look into your suggestions, thank you.
