Synopsis:
This extra length video provides the definitive film history of the Luftwaffe from its secret origins to the end of the Second World War. Packed with original film footage, including much rare and previously unavailable material, 'Luftwaffe at War' offers a detailed account of the Luftwaffe in action from Europe to the Eastern Front, and from the Western Desert to the Atlantic. All the main aircraft types are featured, along with full coverage of advanced jet and rocket planes and the fearsome V-Weapons. With its pilots trained in secrecy and its aircraft disguised as civilian airliners, Nazi Germany built a truly formidable air force that shocked the world when it was finally unleashed.
The Luftwaffe played a vital role in the Blitzkrieg war of 1939 and 1940 and seemed invincible in the air - until it met the Spitfires and Hurricanes of the RAF in the skies over Southern England in 1940...The Blitzkrieg over, the Luftwaffe demonstrated its versatility in a variety of other roles, until it faced its next major challenge - the invasion of Russia. On the Western Front, initial successes against the vast Allied bomber offensive faltered as the Allies introduced escort fighters. New jet fighters like the Me 262 and the rocket-powered Komet could not make up for the Luftwaffe's lack of pilots, aircraft and fuel...With the Allies sweeping in from west and east upon a Germany in ruins, it would be up to the Luftwaffe to fight a desperate rearguard action with whatever it could muster....
