The Luftwaffe, referring to: German Nazi airforce. It was formed in 1935, breaking the Treaty of Versailles. The Luftwaffe was part of the Wehrmacht, the main Nazi force governing Germany. Even when the Treaty of Versailles was being formed, Germany was experimenting with plane design.
In the beginning, the Luftwaffe was fighting a desperate war. Their numbers stretched for hundreds of thousands of miles. The members and pilots of the Luftwaffe knew they were fighting nothing more than a bloody war of attrition, and they were losing.
The Luftwaffe is notorious for producing many of the most decorated and skilled aces in history. They also birthed the Fallschirmjäger, or German Paratroops. The Luftwaffe planes were:
