Table of Contents

With over 1400 photographs, black & white illustrations and profiles, Luftwaffe Codes, Markings & Units, 1939-1945, is the most complete and systematic approach to the documentation of Luftwaffe codes and units ever assembled.

This is truly a master reference work on the Luftwaffe and should be part of every reference library. Rosch identifies and documents thousands of Luftwaffe units broken down to the Stab, Staffel, Kette and Kommando level with dates of formation, disbanding or transfer, and includes the field post numbers assigned to each unit. There is a detailed explanation of how operational codes evolved and were transferred between units, and there are special sections on gliders, transports, fighter and ground attack units and how they identified and marked their aircraft. Hundreds of photographs and drawings illustrate the operational, training, second line and special purpose units. A glossary of nearly all the names of Luftwaffe flying units and other terminology is included, along with the locations of many of the training units.

This book is intended for libraries, historians, researchers, modelers and any others with a general or specific interest in the Luftwaffe.
