The Luftwaffe dovetails into my primary or main interest in the Kriegsmarine, I would certainly claim no expertise on the subject.
The Classic Aviation series, excellent - tend to take from them what I need at a given moment rather than a cover to cover read.
Middlebrook for an author on Bomber Command and the air war relating to it, second to none as is Theo Botiens NJG Diaries and the current reprint by Red Kite Books.
The next two on Atlantic ops very good, in many ways depends on what shakes your tree. :)
The After the Battle Blitz triology and their Battle of Britain book does good coverage of the 1939-45 air attacks.
