The architect of the Luftwaffe in the 1920s and 1930s, Albert Kesselring fought in almost every major campaign of the Second World War, from the Battle of Britain through the Western Desert to the last-ditch defence of Germany. This first complete biography explores the character and charts the career of a commander who won the admiration of his troops and - despite his complicity in the massacre of civilians in Italy - the respect of his adversaries.
