Anti-Aircraft Assistants vs. Allied Bomber Crews
The author describes in the book >You up there - we down here< his experiences as a Luftwaffe Anti-Aircraft Assistant 1944-1945:
“It was simply a question of us fifteen to sixteen-year olds manning the anti-aircraft guns on the ground defending ourselves against the airmen in the bombers and fighters 20 000 feet above our heads.”
Letters, reports, documents and above all, the author’s complete diary and photographs that do so much to authenticate this time capsule. He describes how it was in those days, the final two years of World War II – both on the ground and in the air, manning the guns and systems of the 7th German Anti-Aircraft Brigade, or on operations with the bombers of the 15th US Air Fleet - including insight into the lives of the schoolboy troopers “down here” and the bomber crews “up there”.
This Time Capsule >You up there - we down here< includes some 280 photographs and illustrations, most of them never published before. Format 20*28cm, 270 pages, Hardcover, .
