The Awards of the Luftwaffe, by Antonio Scapini, gives an invaluable overview of the decorations a member of the Luftwaffe could receive between 1935 and 1945. In the usual format of the “The Awards of-Series” by B&D Publishing, history, regulations, award criteria, manufacturers, and documents are listed, supported by contemporary photos. The book will be an important tool for the novice as well as the advanced collector. For the first time, every Luftwaffe decoration has been documented, supported by the original decrees as outlined in the Luftwaffenverordnungsblätter, correcting and clarifying some of the misinterpretations found in earlier literature. This book gives a solid referance source for the decorations of the Luftwaffe branch of National-Socialist Germany.
