Source Text: #xB7;after some time I told my crew to bale out. As the last one, I had some difficulties in getting out of my seat because the 'plane went out of control as soon as I let go of the stick. Finally I made it and the 'plane went down near my parachute. I landed in a field near the burning 'plane and broke my ankle." The aircraft that shot down Gunther Hubner's Dornier Do 17 was a Bristol Beaufighter flown by Squadron Leader James Little of 219 Squadron who, "opened fire at about 200 yards range aiming at centre of fuselage. This was immediately followed by flashes and sparks of dazzling intensity which appeared to come mostly from the starboard side of e/a." To complete the picture, the author then quotes the newspaper report of the following day: "The wreckage was strewn over.a wide area and what were apparently cannon shells and incendiary bombs exploding for some time. A fire-watcher and a farmer were guided to where the injured pilot lay by his groans." The Luftwaffe's Blitz, with so many comprehensive accounts like that of the shooting down of Gunther Hubner's Dornier, is not just a very interesting book to read - it is also a very valuable record of the Blitz which will provide important source information for historians for decades to come. --Robert Mitchell This is the latest book from Chris Goss published by Crecy Publishing covering the air war between England and Germany. Gross has written several books on this subject some of which include: The Luftwaffe Bombers' Battle of Britain, The Luftwaffe Fighters' Battle of Britain, and Brothers in Arms. The Luftwaffe's Blitzis a hardback book measuring 6-1/4" X 9-1/2" and contains 264 pages. It comes in a high quality, semi-gloss paper cover. The book contains many never before published black and white periodphotographs. Each photograph is accompanied by a block of text explaining the action or activity seen.Adolf Hitler gave a speech on September 4, 1940 in which he announced that the Luftwaffe would respond to England's nightly raids on Germany by bombing English cities into oblivion. On September 7, 1940, the Luftwaffe's tactics changed when London and other cities became the target of German bombers. What became known as the Blitz had begun and the Battle of Britain was underway. Eight months later on May 10, 1941, the German air war changed again and the Blitz ended.Many books have been written about the Battle of Britain and the Blitz and several movies have been produced documenting the British struggle for survival. However, much of it has been from the British perspective. What makes The Luftwaffe's Blitz interesting is that it tells the story from the German perspective in a unique way. Gross uses the first-hand accounts from over 30 German aircrew members who participated in the Blitz along with many previously unpublished photographs. Many of the accounts are graphic as the pilots, observers, gunners, etc. describe the horror of being shot down or loosing fellow crewmembers or friends. It is easy to see that the German aircrews experienced the same fears, anxieties, and apprehensions that the British aircrews experienced in this battle.The structure of the book begins with what can be called the preliminaries. These are the Acknowledgements, Glossary, Forward, Introduction and Prologue. The Glossary is very helpful with its translations of German terms and abbreviations. I used is frequently.Following the preliminaries are three chapters that break the November to May Blitz into three segments. An Epilogue and Conclusion follow the three chapters.There are five appendices that supplement the body of the text nicely. The first is a Dramatis Personae or a list of the main characters in the book and their fate. Appendix 2 is the Luftwaffe Bomber Order of Battle listing the various units' home base. Appendix 3 lists known dates, targets, and units involved in the raids. Appendix 4 is Luftlotte 3's detailed report of the November 15 raid on Coventry in which 568 civilians were killed. Finally, Appendix 5 contains reconnaissance photographs and maps of several targeted British cities.I found this book a fascinating and easyread. I thoroughly enjoyed it. The material is logically presented in chronological order. For the modeler, many details can be gleaned fro
