This is an excellent, very lightly used example of the rare Oberkommando der Wehrmacht photo history Der Luftsieg im Westen (Air Victory in the West) by Oberstleutnant Dr. Eichelbaum as published by Junker & Dünhaupt Verlag in Berlin in 1943. Using 144 pictures from a couple dozen different Kriegsberichter or frontline photographers, the author tells the story of the victories by Luftwaffe troops who participated in the combat actions in Belgium, Holland, Luxembourg and France in 1940.
Big, clear photographs not typically found elsewhere cover the campaign from its planning by Adolf Hitler and Hermann Göring to Eben Emael, Liege, Rotterdam, Dordrecht, Maginot Line, airports, railroad yards, bridges, crossroads, cities, harbors and other targets. Many pictures depict Fallschirmjäger or paratroopers in action as well as preparations for bombing missions and the bombing missions themselves. Famous fighter squadrons and famous squadron commanders are shown under the same circumstances. There are 88 mm guns in action against tanks and with Flak troops against enemy aircraft.
The British and Commonwealth forces debacle at Dunkirk is well-covered and one of the last pictures shows a Fieseler Storch standing on the Place de la Concorde in Paris. Stunning photography in an unusual context of Luftwaffe-only campaigns.
This 8 x 10-3/4 inch, 96 page example of Der Luftsieg im Westen is in excellent used condition, impossible to upgrade!
