About this series...

A must for every Luftwaffe historian or modeller

Inspired by the declassification Prisoner of War interrogation reports by the UK Government, Nigel Parker took on the challenge of researching every enemy aircraft crash that occurred over the UK. Simon Parry soon joined the project to complete a task he had begun over 30 years before with After the Battle’s ground-breaking ‘Blitz – Then and Now’ series in the 1980s.

Published in 12 volumes between 2014 -2018, this Herculean project has now been completed and is available as a complete set, or individual volumes.

I’ve got ‘Blitz – Then and Now’ – why should I buy this?
