The Luftwaffe excelled at ground attack and revolutionized modern warfare. Whether flying in support of the panzer columns in the invasion of Poland and destruction of France, deployed against British airfields and cities, sent in against Soviet tank armies, or thrown into the defense of the Reich, Germany's bomber and dive-bomber pilots wrought havoc across the face of World War II Europe.

Mike Spick outlines the Luftwaffe's revolutionary tactics, first tested during the Spanish Civil War, and highlights individual tactics and methods used against specific types of target.

First-hand accounts add gripping drama to the narrative, and give an unsurpassed appreciation of just what it was like to strafe, dive-bomb, come under attack by fighters and brave the barrage of anti-aircraft guns.
