This volume deals with Luftwaffe fighter activity in the Balkans in the Spring of 1941 when German forces got embroiled in a conflict which seriously, some say fatally, delayed the start of Barbarossa, addresses the Luftwaffe fighter units which participated in the beginning of the epic struggle against the Soviets in 1941. Explains why German forces came to be fighting in North Africa and covers in detail the Luftwaffe fighter operations in this theatre. Originally flying in aid of Italian forces, from February 1941 the German fighter force then flew in support of Rommel's famed Afrika Korps, and this title describes German fighter operations during Operations Brevity and Battleaxe, the Crusader battles, the capture of Tobruk and Rommel's advance to El Alamein. The story of the Jagdwaffe on the Eastern Front continues with an explanation of the reasons for the German retreat from Moscow in late 1941 and subsequent rallying of forces prior to the advances of 1942. This book chronicles the astonishing victories scored by Luftwaffe fighter aces over the Soviet Air Force during battle for the Crimea and during the advance on Stalingrad and describes the activities of the Luftwaffe's fighter-force in its battles over the Russian Front.
