Luftwaffe over Poland - doubts

Post by Fencer » 27 May 2002 02:22

I'm glad I found this great site but I was a little surprised to read the chapter about Luftwaffe operations over Poland in september 39. I wonder what are the sources for those figures, they look more like a propaganda stuff to me. Btw same missed information can be found in Cajus Bekker's "Angrifshoehe 4000". I'm really curious where is this data coming from.

I'm not going to point out where exactly the site doesn't match the info I posses. Instead here is a couple of websites I found about air war over Poland in september 1939. They are all based on figures and facts given by Jerzy B. Cynk or Jerzy Pawlak - 2 most reliable historians investigating Polish campaign.
Sry for my bad English :)

Aleks,

Welcome to the forum.

Are you referring to Christoph's site, http://www.wwiidaybyday.com/ (which I believe has a section on the topic), or mine or Mikes?

Hello!

If you could be more specific which "figures" you doubt. The events on my page are from many different german sources including Geschwader KTB, OKW reports and so on.

I would be very interested which events you don´t like so we can disscuss the information.

Christoph

PS: Thes site especially the Luftlage reports are far from complete and I add info constantly. You say that you donßt want to point out certain things you disagree... well than the discussion makes no sense.
