That said, it is at times biased or skewed, seemingly in order to support th Published in , this book tells the story of the wartime Luftwaffe through the life of Field Marshal Erhard Milch. That said, it is at times biased or skewed, seemingly in order to support the authors conclusion. For example, a chapter about 'Big Week' in February refers only to the alleged massive disruption caused to German aircraft production - other published histories refer to the damage to the German aircraft industry as being fairly limited, whilst emphasising the severe losses to the Jagdwaffe in both pilots and aircraft in attempting to defend the targets.
It remains an interesting read, not apparently suffering from the serious flaws and contentious subjects that have since discredited the author. Mar 24, John rated it it was amazing. An incredible man Field Marshal Milch!
The obstacles he had to over come, the back stabbing, the jealousy, the vanity of engineers. There were a lot of senior officials throwing people under the bus with jealousy. An incredible book.

One of the very few Irvings I read, long before his racism and Nazi bias became well-known. I remember this being fairly straightforward and interesting, but it's been years since I read it. May 30, Chris Brimmer rated it really liked it Shelves: biography , history , military-affairs.

The Rise and Fall of the Luftwaffe, The Life of Field Marshal Erhard Milch
Commando Operations I was watching an episode of World War II in Color on the Military Channel last night, which included a discussion of the formation and employment of the British Commandos as a means to bring the war to Germany after the fall of France. The Boer units were loosely organized and disciplined. They were irregular guerrillas in the traditional sense of the term, depending on nationalism and the ineptitude of the British for success.
Both were available in abundant supply.
Their World War II counterparts were just the opposite. The men of Combined Operations were professional soldiers, picked from the Independent Companies that had been raised for the Norwegian expedition and from volunteers. They were subject to military discipline and training, which, if unorthodox, was still of a professional military caliber. The commandos of World War II were a product of both traditional skirmishing tactics and modern technology.
