Air Power at the Battlefront

Recommended Posts

Interesting read. Clearly the perceived threat from Allied air power by the German troops was far greater than the actual, physical threat. The number of abandoned vehicles or the number of vehicles destroyed by their own crew was suprisingly high.

I wonder if a survey exists for prior to the breakout, and if so whether the number of abandoned vehicles would be so high. It could be that crews destroyed/abandoned their vehicles more easily after COBRA because there may have been a feeling amongst the German Army that they had lost the battle once the breakout has occurred. Or maybe not.

Anyway good read for a Friday afternoon. Beats the crap out of working.
