About this title

Synopsis:

Based on forty years of detailed research, the Phoenix Project is a unique history of the wartime German Luftwaffe. Going far beyond a simple description of famous air battles and operations the overall work draws extensively on original documents, secondary sources and contemporary accounts to place the Luftwaffe within its proper historical context, gather together its many disparate components and provide a hitherto unpublished balance to its diverse activities. In addition to the lead role of the combat air forces the history provides a proper emphasis to the largely unsung work of the Anti-Aircraft Artillery, Luftwaffe ground forces, Signals Service and the Medical Services. It also examines in detail the vital work of the huge training organisation and the organisation and role of a continent-wide ground organisation. All theatres are covered thus placing a much needed emphasis on the Luftwaffe's momentous struggle in the East, a theatre of operations that was always more urgent and more vital to the Wehrmacht. Throughout this work Luftwaffe activities are set within the wider role of overall military operations and Luftwaffe activity is therefore placed back within its proper context in the overall European conflict . Volume 1: The Phoenix Reborn covers a particularly neglected area, specifically the post-war Reichswehr and the years of secrecy leading up to the unveiling of the Luftwaffe in 1935. Much of the key developmental work was completed at this time and the first volume examines the evolution of the uniquely German concept of operativer Luftkrieg, the work of the clandestine air staff and the key roles played by the German Transport Ministry and the Flight Centre Lipetsk in the technical development of military aircraft and the training of military aviators. It shows how Goring and Hitler essentially inherited an air arm in waiting- a product of covert military professional endeavour over a period of fifteen years. The structure of the Phoenix Pro

Review:

This book should provide readers with a complete understanding of the early years of the Luftwaffe while its existence was still in fact a secret to many. You can see where the 40 years of research have gone to provide such an in depth look at this period...Highly Recommended. Source: Britmodeller.com

One for the serious student of aviation history this. Source: The Catalina News

It is well written and very readable as well as undoubtedly the most accessible resource on the topic. Source: Flightpath Magazine

I would not be exaggerating in saying that this is the most comprehensive piece of work ever produced about the Luftwaffe which has taken the author over 40 years to produce...A very highly recommended serious piece of work. Source: Model Boat World

The value of this first volume is in providing the reader with a diligent and empathetic “onestop shop” overview of the period covered, based on the prime existing literature. Source: The Aviation Historian Magazine
