5.0 out of 5 stars Spitfire on my Tail, 29 July 2010
This review is from: Spitfire on My Tail: A View from the Other Side (Hardcover)
An excellent book, telling the story of the most important batlle of WWII from the other side. My father was a bomber command piloy during WWII and I grew up with his views and the views offered or portrayed by films and the popular media. The book gives an excellent historic build up to WWII and helps one to understand that the Treaty of Versailles made WWII inevitable.

The formation and the build up of the Luftwaffe is covered in detail and I was suprised to discover that the Germans were not as organised as one is generalyy lead to believe, particularly in terms of communications.

This is not just a book for the historian, but for the aviation enthusiast as well as well as for those who enjoy a bibliography. For me it shows that the young men of Germany were no different to the young men on the other side. Both were sent off to war by people in power and gave their young precious lives tragically just the same.

One of the most enjoyable books that I have ever read. Thank you Ulrich!
