YES!!!!!

Another book that I managed to replace with a hard back copy, Luftwaffe War Diaries is an excellent source for infomation on all aspects of the development and deployment of the Air Force. Other very good sources are Hooton's "Pheonix Triumphant" & "Eagle in Flames", Adrian Weir's "Last flight of the Luftwaffe", Martin Middlebrooks books on the Nuremberg and Schweinfurt raids.

I'll second that...I refer to "The Luftwaffe War Diaries" frequently. A very useful source for the history of Luftwaffe operations on all fronts (including airborne op's)!
