    Pier Paolo Battistelli(Author) Adam Hook(Illustrator)
Although he is mostly remembered for his part in the campaign in Italy from 1943 to 1945, Generalfeldmarschall Albert Kesselring was also chief of staff of the Luftwaffe in 1936-37, playing a crucial role in the shaping of the service for the coming war. As commander of Luftflotte 1 in Poland and Luftflotte 2 in France and the Low Countries, he was responsible for supporting the armoured spearheads of the German Army as they undertook their Blitzkrieg campaigns. With the Fall of France, the Battle of Britain began and Luftlotte 2 was the main force in the air attack against the British air defences, with Kesselring planning many raids. Following the war Kesselring was tried and convicted of war crimes following a number of massacres of civilians in Italy. He was sentenced to death, later commuted to life imprisonment before being released on the grounds of ill health in October 1952. Here Pier Paolo Battistelli provides a detailed study of one of the most famous German commanders of World War II.

"Author Pier Paolo Battistelli does a great job of not only telling the story of Kesselring, but also looking into the man himself ... Not only do we look at the life of the man, but are able to follow his career from the beginning and see how he handled each of the commands he was given. It is a superb book about one of Germany's most well respected generals. A book I thoroughly enjoyed reading and one that I can most highly recommend to you."- Scott Van Aken, "Modeling Madness "(April 2012) ..".provides a fine biography of of field marshal Albert Kesselring, a key figure during the Italian campaign of 1943-45."- "The Midwest Book Review "(November 2012) ..".a brief but excellent look at the life of Albert Kesselring."- Richard Mataka,"
