STRANGE DEFEAT

by Marc Bloch

First published in 1949, this is 'A Statement of Evidence Written in 1940'. Having returned home from military service following the fall of France, Bloch wrote this manuscript to analyse the military faiures he had witnessed. He concluded that the immediate cause of the disaster was the utter incompetence of the French High command. Having worked with the Resistance since 1942, he was arrested by the Vichy police in March, 1944. They handed him over to the Gestapo who tortured and shot him.

HEINKEL HE 111

by Karl-Heinz Regnat 

During the Battle of Britain and in the dark and dangerous period which followed, many people in the British Isles would have been all too aware of the shape and sound of the twin-engined Heinkel 111 bomber, with its distinctive glazed nose. Though still in front line service in large numbers at this time, the aircraft was already becoming obselete. The type first flew in 1935 and saw active service during the Spanish Civil War. It was used to equip Kampfgruppe 88, the bomber component of Legion Condor, Hitler's aerial assistance to the Spanish fascists. Later it served in a wide variety of roles. Though mainly used as a bomber, it also undertook reconnaissance, torpedo bombing, glider towing and transport roles.
