In Furious Skies


11 January 2023

Regular Armourer contributor Tim Heath is back with another look at the people of the Third Reich, this time covering those who flew in the Luftwaffe. Of course there’s the history of the organisation as it went to war, there are technical details of the engines and planes as well. It covers everything from the Spanish Civil War, the Blitzkrieg in Poland, the Battle of Britain and the Blitz, North Africa, jet rocket developments and V weapons, and the final collapse.
What makes it come alive though are the numerous interviews and comments from those who flew, men and women, and what they felt about their experiences. This brings the story to life with humour and sadness in equal measure. A cracking read.
