The aces of Germany's Luftwaffe were the highest scoring fighter pilots of World War II. Despite flying and fighting in support of one of the most evil and despotic governments to darken the face of planet Earth, the "Experten" of the Luftwaffe had over 100 pilots who each shot down over 100 enemy aircraft in combat. Two actually scored more than 300 kills, a record which will never be matched. By comparison, the top aces of the Western Allies and Soviet Union only had a handful of pilots with more than 30 kills. And despite the evil and toxic leadership of Adolph Hitler and Herman Goring, these were men who retained their personal honor and the respect of their enemy peers.These were men who truly did fight from the first day of World War II, to the last one in Europe on VE Day.
To learn moe about the fighter aces of the Luftwaffe, join military historian, author and journalist John D. Gresham (@greshamj01) for Military Monday (#MilitaryMonday on @Writestream) at 1 p.m. Eastern. His guest this week will be Zenith Press (@Zenith_Press) writer Colin Heaton, who has spent the last three decades personally interviewing many of the top surviving German aces of World War II. They will be joined by his co-anthor and wife, Anne Marie Lewis, with whom he has produced a pair of books, THE GERMAN ACES SPEAK and THE GERMAN ACES SPEAK II, which describe the lives and careers of these amazing men. Listeners are encouraged to call in to offer questions and opinions, on what will be a fine hour talking about some of the finest pilots that have ever lived.
70 years ago this week, the decisive battles of the air war over Western Europe were fought, in what today is known as “Big Week.” During the series of massive aerial incursions into Germany, along with others in the weeks that followed, the U.S. 8th and 15th Air Forces struck targets deep inside Germany, with the specific goal of destroying Hitler's Luftwaffe and paving the way for Allied air supremacy for the remainder of World War II. Big Week was more than just a Maximum Effort” by the American air forces, but a complete revamp of the U.S. strategic air campaign which had suffered crippling losses for over a year. But new leadership in the form of the legendary Lieut. Gen. James H. “Jimmy” Doolittle, the introduction of the revolutionary P-51 Mustang fighter, and a radical tactics change turned the tide in the European air war. By making the Luftwaffe the primary target of the American air campaign, instead of targets on the ground, Doolittle and his flyers rapidly created the conditions to make Allied victory in Europe possible.
To learn more about Big Week and the American bombing campaign in Europe during World War II, join military historian, author and journalist John D. Gresham for Military Monday at 1 p.m. Eastern. His guest this week is Robert F. “Bob” Dorr, author of the book Mission to Berlin. Together they will talk about this turning point in World War II, along with telling the stories of the young man who flew these critical and deadly missions. Listeners will learn that these were not just “raids” into Germany, but major battles fought on the edge of the stratosphere, lasting up to 10 hours, and costing thousands of young Allied airmen. Listeners are encouraged to call in and offer questions and opinions, in what is going to be a commemoration to the young flyers of America's “Greatest Generation.”

ORAL HISTORIES FROM THE THIRD REICH – A Tribute to the REAL Greatest Generation
In this Edition of World View Foundations, Rodney will discuss the World View Foundations Oral History Project
World View Foundations conducts Oral History interviews with people whose stories are critical in providing an accurate and complete narrative as to what life was really like in the Third Reich, World War II and to separate fact from fiction and propaganda.
The greatest disservice and distortion of history has been the failure to document these German’s Oral History and thus allowing a one sided, agenda driven narrative to perpetuate emotionally charged over simplifications and outright falsehoods as to everyday life in the Third Reich.
Rodney recently completed one of the most emotional Oral Histories, interviewing a former Luftwaffe pilot (from Germany) who flew air defense over the German Reich in 1944/45.

The summer of 1940 was the high water mark of Adolf Hitler's conquests in Western Europe. Having taken everything between Warsaw and Paris in less than a year, only Great Britain stood alone against the might of the Nazi war machine. And then, history and legend tell us, a few hundred fighter pilots of the RAF's Fighter Command stopped the German Luftwaffe and stood as a shield between England and invasion. Prime Minister Winston Churchill declared it to be Great Britain's " Finest Hour," and so it has been in the lore of that country and the world.
The truth behind the Battle of Britain however, is somewhat more complex and less clear than most history books present it. Operation Sealion, the German plan to invade England, was very limited in scope and dependent upon a number of things going right. In particular, because of the potential strength of the Royal Navy against the German invasion forces, air supremacy over southern England was an absolute necessity for the Germans. And how all those factors mixed together is an intriguing story that is rarely told.
In commemoration of the 73rd anniversary of the Battle of Britain, and to learn more about this first great clash of air forces, join military historian, author and journalist John D. Gresham for Military Monday at 1 p.m. Eastern. His guest this week is noted aviation author and historian Barrett Tillman, who knew and interviewed many of the actual participants of the 1940 summer air campaign over England. Together they will go and spend the entire hour discussing the details of the battle, and some of the nuances that made it unique not only in the history of air power, warfare itself. Listeners are encouraged to call in to ask questions and offer opinions should they desire. And together we can all know a little bit more about "The Few...."

In November 1945 the victors of World War 2 commenced the historic "Nuremberg Trials" - in which a number of defendants including high ranking Nazi officials like Hermann Goering (commander of the German air force or "luftwaffe") and Rudolph Hess (the deputy fuhrer) were tried for crimes against the peace, crimes against humanity and war crimes. In 1948, the U.S. conducted a second set of trials ("the subsequent Nuremberg trials") in which judges, doctors and businessmen were tried. In this show, we will focus on the trial of the judges - the "Alstotter trial" or "Justice" case - on which the award winning film "Judgement at Nuremberg" is based. By focusing on the Justice case, our aim is to have the listener appreciate the philosophical, moral and legal significance of the Nuremberg trials.
The Lockheed P-38 Lightning was a World War II American fighter aircraft built by Lockheed. Developed to a United States Army Air Corps requirement, the P-38 had distinctive twin booms and a single, central nacelle containing the cockpit and armament. Named "fork-tailed devil" (der Gabelschwanz-Teufel) by the Luftwaffe and "two planes, one pilot" (2????1????? Ni hikoki, ippairotto?) by the Japanese, the P-38 was used in a number of roles, including dive bombing, level bombing, ground-attack, night fighting, photo reconnaissance missions, and extensively as a long-range escort fighter when equipped with drop tanks under its wings.
The P-38 was used most successfully in the Pacific Theater of Operations and the China-Burma-India Theater of Operations as the mount of America's top aces, Richard Bong (40 victories) and Thomas McGuire (38 victories). In the South West Pacific theater, the P-38 was the primary long-range fighter of United States Army Air Forces until the appearance of large numbers of P-51D Mustangs toward the end of the war.
The P-38 was unusually quiet for a fighter, the exhaust muffled by the turbo-superchargers. It was extremely forgiving, and could be mishandled in many ways. The P-38 was the only American fighter aircraft in production throughout American involvement in the war, from Pearl Harbor to Victory over Japan Day.
The American ace of aces and his closest competitor both flew Lightnings as they tallied 40 and 38 victories respectively. Majors Richard I. "Dick" Bong and Thomas B. "Tommy" McGuire of the USAAF competed for the top position. Both men were awarded the Medal of Honor.
