Luftwaffe's Last Big DayPaul Beaver Lecture
Hitler’s mighty Luftwaffe was a shadow of its former self by the end of 1944. The campaign on three fronts had sapped it of skilled pilots; the bombing campaign had reduced the fuel available; the factories could not produce enough aero engines. Despite the advent of the jet fighter and other developments, the Luftwaffe was doomed. Hermann Göring planned one last throw of the dice as Paul Beaver will recount as he traces the German air force from 1933 to 1945.
