    From a secret force in the early 1930s, the Luftwaffe grew to become the efficient spearhead of blitzkrieg by the end of the decade, but its ascendancy waned after 1940. Samuel Mitcham's study assesses the Luftwaffe's battles, profiles the key figures, such as Goering, Galland and Erhard Milch, the head of aircraft production, and argues that it was a failure of leadership rather than the superiority of the enemy that led to its decisive defeat.
