Although the Luftwaffe achieved a great deal of success in North Africa between 1940 and 1943, it was hampered by the constant demand for men and machines elsewhere, logistical problems, such as a crippling lack of fuel, and the harsh desert conditions.

An impressive selection of photographs from archives and private collections reveal the German and Italian aircraft used and developed in this theater as well as the people involved. With insightful captions and supporting text, this offers a fascinating perspective on the Luftwaffe at war.


"To be completely honest, I’d sort of forgotten that this review copy of Eagles was on it’s way to me. So it’s arrival was a rather pleasant surprise. In fact, it was an extremely pleasant surprise: This book, part of the Luftwaffe At War series , is an absolute gem."
