The German Luftwaffe entered the Second World War with the world's most effective bomber force, built around the Heinkel He-111 and Dornier D0-17 medium bombers, and the new Junkers JU-88 'Schnellbomber.' From its outset, the new Luftwaffe was planned as a tactical instrument designed to provide air support to the Army in what was assumed would be a short war. This program explores the initially successful strategy and how it ultimately failed when the need for long-range heavy bombers and a great fighter force proved necessary. 2005/b&w/54 min/NR/fullscreen.
