Unit Histories, Luftwaffe StG/SG/KG?

Post by Cult Icon » 07 Feb 2022 01:59

Any recommendations for detailed unit histories of Luftwaffe Dive bomber/Ground attack or Bomber formations?

To start, I recommend "Dive Bomber and Ground-Attack Units of the Luftwaffe 1933-1945" vol. 1, vol. 2 and "Bomber Units of the Luftwaffe 1933-1945" vol. 1, vol. 2 " (Zeng, Stankey,Creek) that have capsule histories of the majority of the formations. The details provided can be matched with the ground campaigns.
