Eagles Over the Sea, 1935-42 : The History of Luftwaffe Maritime Operations
by Lawrence Paterson




Overview -
The arduous development of a dedicated naval air arm for Germany's resurgent military was fraught with the kind of fierce interservice rivalry that was rife throughout the turbulent history of the Third Reich. However, almost despite the odds, a small dedicated maritime strike force was assembled, germinating during the Spanish Civil War before being committed to action from the first days of the invasion of Poland. Concurrently, the operational Luftwaffe developed its own maritime units that would eventually subsume all of the Kriegsmarine-controlled formations as the war years progressed. Eagles Over the Sea offers an in-depth study of all the Luftwaffe maritime operations.

The story of Luftwaffe maritime operations has frequently been written about in fragmentary terms, delineating between the planned naval air arm operating under Kriegsmarine direction and the operational Luftwaffe. Each branch of service -- and even aircraft type -- has usually been studied in isolation. This book, however, broadens the lens to study the development of German naval aircraft as a whole. Heavily illustrated throughout, this detailed and exciting operational history will be of huge appeal to both naval and aviation historians and enthusiasts.
