The German Air Force

The German Air Force The size, striking power and general quality of the German Air Force are the dominating facts in the present position of European diplomacy. Statements made about Germany's alleged superiority in the air played their part in forming opinion at the time of the Munich Agreement. Unfortunately, there is no subject on which, in the absence of ascertained fact, wilder misstatements are current. Since the export of information about the Air Force is, in Germany, a form of high treason, the disentangling of the probably true from the certainly false is a task of considerable difficulty. An attempt has been made here to present such estimates as seem reasonably securely based on fact. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Aircraft Engineering and Aerospace Technology Emerald Publishing

Abstract

The size, striking power and general quality of the German Air Force are the dominating facts in the present position of European diplomacy. Statements made about Germany's alleged superiority in the air played their part in forming opinion at the time of the Munich Agreement. Unfortunately, there is no subject on which, in the absence of ascertained fact, wilder misstatements are current. Since the export of information about the Air Force is, in Germany, a form of high treason, the disentangling of the probably true from the certainly false is a task of considerable difficulty. An attempt has been made here to present such estimates as seem reasonably securely based on fact.
