For many years, the study of the history of aerial combat in World War II in general and the history of the German Luftwaffe in particular is almost “family tradition”. It is an interest not driven by ideological or political views but by interest in the men, the technology and the historic events in general.
As “family tradition”, it has resulted in a series of books published by my father, Jürgen Zapf – they are discussed at www.flugplaetze-der-luftwaffe.de, in German language only.
My own interest is not that wide – it is more “spotlight driven” and geared towards individual events or units. The new site can be found at www.chronicles-of-the-luftwaffe.de.
The first post is about the USAAF Mission #63, flown on June 13, 1943 with targets in Bremen and Kiel. Read the Mission Overview here.
