9780700615988: Wolfram von Richthofen: Master of the German Air War (Modern War Studies)

Luftwaffe commander Wolfram von Richthofen was a brilliant master of the tactical and operational air war and one of the key catalysts in the resurrection of Germany's air force. Long overshadowed in history by his cousin, World War I's famous "Red Baron," von Richthofen served in seven major air campaigns from 1936 to 1944, and as senior air commander he was always at the center of the action.

For this first full-length biography of von Richthofen, James Corum has mined the field marshal's extensive diaries, which provide a detailed record of military campaigns, tactical and operational problems, interactions with other commanders, and his assessment of methods and weaponry. He has also drawn on interviews with former Luftwaffe members and on his unparalleled access to von Richthofen family papers and photos.

Corum reveals how, before World War II, von Richthofen played a central role in developing and building the Luftwaffe and such famous aircraft as the Me 109 fighter and He 111 bomber. He then delivered tactical and operational successes in the Spanish Civil War, where he established the close air support tactics that became an essential trademark of the German blitzkrieg. As commander of the Special Air Division in the invasion of Poland, he demonstrated the effectiveness of massed airpower and in 1940 helped produce a dramatic German victory in France by providing close air support for Von Kleist's panzer divisions as they raced to the English Channel. Later he also led the Luftwaffe's Second Air Fleet against the Allied landings in Sicily, Salerno, and Anzio.

Providing a fully rounded portrait, Corum also cites von Richthofen's signal defeats in the Battle of Britain and around Stalingrad; depicts his arrogant and ruthless tendencies; and reveals his loyal but nave belief in Hitler.

Cutting through the myths that have grown around von Richthofen's life, Corum's study fills a major gap in the literature and offers new insight into German military culture, Hitler's strategic thinking, and their impact on the German way of war.

From the Back Cover:

"Field Marshal Wolfram von Richthofen was one of the major figures within the German Luftwaffe, the ground-attack commander par excellence. Corum's book is the first scholarly biography of this crucial figure, and an essential addition to any library on the war."--Robert M. Citino, author of Death of the Wehrmacht

"An excellent biography on the Luftwaffe's top field commander and his amazing career. Like George Patton, Richthofen was a demanding and difficult leader but he helped build the tactical air power of the Luftwaffe, especially through its use in close support of armor. . . . One of the most important books on the Luftwaffe to appear in recent years."--Edward Homze, author of Arming the Luftwaffe
