As the tide of the air war against Germany swung in the Allies favour, so the Luftwaffe was forced increasingly onto the defensive. This book covers the Luftwaffe fighter response to the Allied daylight bomber offensive and the development of the heavily armed and armoured Strumgruppen which made mass, close range attacks against the 'heavies'. The author covers the infamous Schweinfurt raid, D-Day and also the attrition suffered by the Luftwaffe over Normandy.
