Propaganda Postcards of the Luftwaffe focuses on the efforts of the
powerful Nazi propaganda machine to promote the technical
achievements and might of the then newly created German air force.
The Luftwaffe had been announced to the world in March 1935,
despite the restrictions contained in the Versailles Treaty signed
after the First World War denying Germany the right to develop
military aircraft. All major aircraft types used by the Luftwaffe
together with many lesser known, obscure and secondary types are
represented in this book. There is a section covering the main
figures of the Luftwaffe and the leading aces who flew the
aircraft. The German Air and Propaganda ministries worked together
and, using professional photographers produced quality images,
which were then made available to the general public in an attempt
to inspire the nation and create strong moral.
