NEW TITLE FOR 2013:
ADOLF’S BRITISH HOLIDAY SNAPS.
Luftwaffe Aerial Reconnaissance Photographs of England,Scotland and Wales
Hardback: 224 pages
Cover Price: £14.99
Author: Nigel J. Clarke
In the first years of the Second World War, and the years leading up to it, Hitler ordered the Luftwaffe to undertake a secret aerial reconnaissance of the United Kingdom (and all of Europe) in preparation for an invasion. After the collapse of the Third Reich, the race to salvage the secrets of Hitler’s huge intelligence gathering operation began. The Luftwaffe archive was of extreme value both to the west and the Soviet Union and competing Soviet and Allied intelligence operatives searched desperately in the debris of the Third Reich for archive of the Luftwaffe.
In June 1945, British intelligence Unit stumbled upon 16 tons of reconnaissance pictures in a barn at Bad Reichenall, deep in the forests of Bavaria. The entire cache was transported and flown back to Britain. There were no announcements and few people were aware of this major discovery. The archive was classified as top secret and disappeared into the vaults of CIA and the British secret service.
Fragments of this unique record did leach out and in 1974 the entire Luftwaffe archive was declassified and free for public access.
The book contains numerous images of the United Kingdom taken by the Luftwaffe and a history and background to this unique window on a Britain captured in the past.
