Volume 1 covers the first year, the period from phoney war to total war:
3rd September 1939 to 6th September 1940. Beginning with endless air raid
warnings and a sense of unreality, it was a phase which was to culminate in
Hitler threatening to raze Britain's cities to the ground. As a direct source of
the day-to-day effects of Luftwaffe operations over Britain at the time, the
book utilises extracts from the 24-hour log compiled by the Ministry of Home
Security, and this provides a contemporary diary of events as they affected the
Home Front. These entries ideally form the setting for a detailed record of the
losses sustained by the Luftwaffe over Britain and within sight of land: a
barometer of the air war, showing clearly the changing climate of hostilities.
Every German crash on land is listed with its crew, and footnotes are included
on all the crash sites which are known to have been investigated or excavated
since the end of the war, together with photographs of some of the more
interesting discoveries. Features and special articles by historians and
eyewitnesses intersperse the daily happenings, illustrating life at the time on
both the civilian and service fronts.
