The Luftwaffe and the War at Sea is a collection of fascinating accounts written by German military officers-both Kriegsmarine and Luftwaffe-about the naval war
in the air in the North Atlantic and around Great Britain. The writers include such well-known German names as Grossadmiral Karl Doenitz, Kontreadmiral Gerhard Wagner, General der Flieger Ulrich O. E. Kessler and Vizeadmiral Eberhard Weichold.
The history recounted in these reports is unique and first-hand, allowing for a fresh perspective on those famous campaigns. Furthermore, much of that wartime experience was harnessed during the formation of the Bundersmarine's Marineflieger in the 1950s that then served throughout the Cold War and today is participating in the global war on terror with its Atlantic marine patrols.
