A case study in combined arms warfare that fills many of the gaps left by other studies of the eastern war, reconsidering Luftwaffe operation in the Battle of Stalingrad in light of a wider body of documentary sources and analyzing many previously ignored events. Focuses on Hitler's use of the air force as a tactical rather than strategic weapon in support of ground forces, and shows that the army relied on Luftwaffe support to a greater degree than previously revealed. Includes b&w photos. For military historians and general readers. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
