IN my judgement The Rise and Fall of the
Luftwaffe ranks with Albert Speer's memoirs Inside
the Third Reich as by far the most important book on
Hitler's Germany to have appeared. . . Undoubtedly, it
places David Irving in the front rank of contemporary
Montgomery Hyde, Books & Bookmen, May 1974.
AFTER considerable vicissitudes David Irving takes his
place in the first rank of historical chroniclers with
this magisterial study. -- Laurence
Cotterell, The Times, March 14, 1974
Mr. IRVING has made splendid use of the Milch papers
and other German records which he has been able to study.

Sunday Telegraph, March 10, 1974
DAVID Irving's remarkable exploration of the mind of
Milch -- David Divine, The
Sunday Times, March 10, 1974
combines a scholarly approach with an easy-to-read,
pleasant style. The book . . . is wonderfully complete.
New York Times, November
IRVING'S earlier books have sometimes shown
exaggeration and lack of judgement. This one is
scholarly, fair and highly informative. -- A.
