This program deals with the decline of the Luftwaffe bombing arm as Germany suffers heavy losses in Russia and the U.K. with its once dreadded night-bombing raids becoming increasingly ineffectual.
This installment of the Archive Collection illustrates the daily realities of the air war over Germany that was constantly escalating between 1942 and 1945. As the Allied forces developed and increased their capacity for air raids, and with the United States executing massive bombings, the day fighters of the Luftwaffe were faced with the task of defending themselves and frustrating the Allied, and they developed fighter planes engineered to do just that. This technology is examined in this in-depth military documentary.
