Sinopsis: This book explains why German forces came to be fighting in North Africa and covers in detail the Luftwaffe fighter operations in this theatre. Originally flying in aid of Italian forces, from February 1941 the German fighter force then flew in support of Rommel's famed Afrika Korps, and this title describes German fighter operations during Operations Brevity and Battleaxe, the Crusader battles, the capture of Tobruk and Rommel's advance to El Elamein. Also included in this title are details of the Luftwaffe's operations against the important island fortress of Malta, together with pilots' accounts, maps, orders of battle and a biography of the 'Star of Africa', Hans-Joachim Marseille. The book's information and color profiles on new and unusual camouflage schemes will be of particular interest to aviation modelers.
About the Author: Erik Mombeek has corresponded with and interviewed hundreds of Luftwaffe veterans and is the author of several internationally acclaimed books on the history and operations of German fighter units. He lives in Belgium and works in music therapy for children. J. Richard Smith is undisputedly one of the world's foremost authorities on the history of the Luftwaffe. His works include the landmark publication "Jet Planes of the Third Reich" as well as "Arado 234 Blitz, Luftwaffe Camouflage & Markings 1935-45," "Me262" and numerous other leading aviation titles. He is a former specialist in the business training sector, having worked for a national telecommunications company. Martin Pegg from an early age showed an interest in aviation history and World War II, particularly the operations of the Luftwaffe's dive-bomber, ground-attack and anti-tank units. In the course of his research, which included detailed correspondence and interviews with many former Luftwaffe air and ground personnel, Pegg discovered a substantial quantity of revealing new information, which served to dispel many inaccurate myths. He now works full time as an aviation editor. He is a keen aircraft modeler and has won International Plastic Modelers Society awards for his work.
