Luftwaffe Schlachtgruppen Paperback
by John Weal
Part of the Aviation Elite Units series
One of the most important, and yet least publiscised, components of the front-line Luftwaffe was the Schlacht, or ground attack, arm.
This book details the Schlacht units who were in the thick of the fighting from the first day of the war until the last.
They played a vital part in the heady successes of the early Blitzkrieg campaigns and went on to perform an equally essential role in the dark hours of last ditch defence and ultimate defeat.
In between, they fought in all defensive battles: on the eastern front at Stalingrad, Kursk and Berlin; in the west, by night, over Normandy, the Ardennes and the Rhine.
