The last line of defense—the men, weapons, and fortifications of the German anti-aircraft teams

During World War II, as the Allies sent thousands of aircraft to attack the German homeland, it was the flak teams that stood as the last line of defense. This handbook covers all aspects of German antiaircraft artillery: its development from the first antiballoon artillery in the Franco-Prussian War of 1870 to the sophisticated ground-to-air rockets in use by 1945; the administrative, strategical, and tactical organizations involved; and the variety of weapons used. It details the uniforms worn by the men including flags, badges, and medals; equipment used such as searchlights, range finders, and radar; and mobile flak emplacements and permanent fortifications. The services involved are also described, including the police, fire brigades, paramilitary auxiliaries, and the German Red Cross. With more than 300 illustrations created by the author, this is an outstanding reference work, providing new insight into the anti-aircraft teams who fought to hold back the overwhelming might of the Allied bombers during World War II.

Book Description The History Press Ltd, United Kingdom, 2013. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. During the Second World War, as the Allies sent thousands of aircraft to attack the German homeland, it was the flak teams that stood as the last line of defence. Forbidden after the end of the First World War, the German flak arm was rebuilt by the Nazis after January 1933, becoming part of the Luftwaffe in 1935 and growing until all branches of the Wehrmacht had their own anti-aircraft capabilities. In The Illustrated Handbook of Flak, Jean-Denis Lepage covers all aspects of German anti-aircraft artillery: its development from the first anti-balloon artillery in the Franco-Prussian War of 1870 to the sophisticated ground-to-air rockets in use by 1945, the administrative, strategical and tactical organisations involved, and the variety of weapons used. It details the uniforms worn by the men - including flags, badges and medals - equipment used such as searchlights, range finders and radar, and mobile flak emplacements and permanent fortifications. The services involved are also described, including the police, fire brigades, paramilitary auxiliaries and the German Red Cross. With over 300 illustrations created by the author, this is an outstanding reference work, providing new insight into the anti-aircraft teams who fought to hold back the overwhelming might of the Allied bombers during the Second World War.
