A virtual encyclopedia of German aeronautical information from early in World War II!
This is a nice example of the 3-3/4 x 5-5/8 inch heavily illustrated 290 page hard cover 1941 Deutscher Luftwaffen Kalender, a pocket sized informational calendar or handbook published by J.M. Reindl Verlag in Bamberg with the approval of the Nazi Air Ministry.
This Third Reich wartime Air Force almanac starts with a Tagesbefehl (Order of the Day) by Nazi Air Minister Hermann Goering dated 5 June 1940, a Preface by Generalfeldmarschall and Luftwaffe Generalinspektor Erhard Milch and an explanation by General der Flieger Christiansen of the goals and task of the NSFK.
This is followed by an explanation of the development of the Luftwaffe and a brief overview of the first year of World War II as well as a list of all the members of die Reichsregierung or the State Government (Hitler, Göring, Hess, von Neurath, Ribbentrop, Goebbels, Frick, Funk, Darré, Rust, Dorpmüller, Ohnesorge, Frank, Lammers, Todt, Rosenberg, etc.)
The 52 page daily calendar portion of this book is supplemented by photos of members of different sections of the Wehrmacht in action, and all sorts of information on flight equipment, weapons, Luftwaffe ranks, important German dates / holidays, aircraft profiles, Luftwaffe badges, flags, instrument and map reading, how to pitch a tent, and advertising related to aviation by companies such as Messerschmitt, Siemens, Fieseler, Junkers, Hensoldt, Triumph Werke, Mercedes Benz, etc.
These Luftwaffe calendars are very useful research tools when dealing with any subject related to the German Air Force during the Third Reich. This 72 year old example has no entries and is in tight, very good condition.
